Highly visible from the Massachusetts Turnpike, Mountfort Place Condominiums is an excellent example of a contemporary interpretation of a traditional architectural style. Located on the corner of Mountfort and St. Mary’s Streets in Brookline, this six-story building complements and blends within the context of its early 20th century neighborhood. Using materials in innovative ways, the design ensures the building would have a stand-alone presence that appeals to both contemporary and traditional design sensibility.
The three-part façade incorporates traditional building components such as bay and clustered window groupings to break down the building’s scale; while a precast cornice visually caps the building at the fifth floor. The rear facades of the building depart from the traditional material vocabulary using a corrugated metal siding system applied in a grid of both vertical and horizontal orientations to provide the exterior with a lively, contemporary feel. The program offers 37 condominiums with a unit mix of one- and two-bedroom flats, and three-bedroom penthouse units. Resident amenities include a fitness center and underground parking.
