Beacon Courtyard TH

Beacon Courtyard TH is a six-story, late 19th-century townhouse in Boston’s historic Back Bay neighborhood. The residence received a complete infrastructure and aesthetic upgrade, including extensive work to level and reinforce the integrity of the existing floors, requiring the addition of steel to the frame. Pre-renovation, the property was characterized by a complex series of internal levels as well as secondary staircases and overlooks. The design team eliminated these confusing and incompatible elements to create a cleaner, more spacious setting for everyday living. Throughout the residence, moments of polished glamour juxtapose with more humble, detailed handwork. The team focused on utilizing pieces with a maker’s touch; weaving, carving, and stitching add depth to the overall contemporary design. Sculptural forms and elemental materials, such as wood, stone, and metal, are also prominent forces. The client's art collection is featured prominently throughout the residence with various key pieces created by notable African-American artists, including Delita Martin, Whitfield Lovell, and Jacob Lawrence.
