Sea-Dar built this new 20,000 sf, four-story townhouse that filled a rare empty lot in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. The project team successfully constructed a modern townhouse that achieves architectural excellence while seamlessly blending into the streetscape. "Designing infill buildings to replace those lost within historic districts is one of the most challenging issues in preservation," said Greg Galer, Executive Director of the Boston Preservation Alliance. "This project manages to fill the 'missing tooth' by providing a design in character with this iconic Boston street but without mimicking its historic neighbors.
It fits its context most beautifully. While not mistaken into believing the building is historic, the viewer may be taken aback by the fact that it is new construction, given its traditional styling and materials."
