Merrill Street

The 30 Merrill Street house is a project of intersections. It seeks to provide modest and achievable living possibilities in a popular neighborhood with increasing land-values. The design is both “of this time” and respectful of the historic context. The construction must be conventional while achieving high-standards of energy efficiency.  The building will have high levels of insulation in the walls and roof, along with triple glazed windows. The building systems run entirely on electricity, allowing the owners to elect low carbon footprint energy options.  Building design utilizes metal fabrications of railings and canopies to bring contemporary detailing to a more traditional building massing. Stepping back the top floor of the building provides outdoor space and reduces the apparent building scale.
