Boston Common Town House



A six-storey 19th century Beacon Hill townhouse has been extensively renovated to provide a modern layout with contemporary materials while retaining historical features such as fireplaces, windows and oval staircase. The contrast of “modern and historic elements is played out with the juxtaposition of materials, patterns, and forms.” An understanding of contemporary family life and a respect for an historic past meet perfectly in this project by Boston-based Hacin + Associates.
