Building 34

Charlestown, MA

Located in the historic Charlestown Navy Yard, the design converted an early 19th century storage building into office and retail space. Two wings were added in cast stone that match the shape and detailing of the original gray ashlar granite in a distinct but compatible buff color. With the interpretive detailing of new arched openings, the wings are a seamless, yet clearly contemporary addition to the original structure.
