West Canton St., Boston, MA
This rather narrow (16' wide) South End Town House backing onto a beautiful private urban park was in a woeful state of disrepair. Years of a leaky roof had degraded any original finishes past the state of saving and had caused the rear masonry wall to detach from the rest of the building and lean dangerously toward the park. Rebuilding this wall was an opportunity to open the lower three floors of the house to the park. Although unified, the window assembly's operation is unique to each floor. The entire assembly adapts to its neighbors by maintaining the 19th Century profiles, intervals and mechanics. The wall above re-uses the face brick of the original wall to maintais compatibility with the neighbors.
