BENEDICT HOUSE and COTTAGES

The Benedict House is a small, two-story Queen Anne style historic house built in the late 1800’s. It was saved from demolition by the Lawrence Preservation Alliance who sought our assistance in creating a suitable plan to preserve the structure. The campus of apartments that evolved utilizes an open lot adjacent to the historic house. Rather than demolishing the house we created a campus of rental units that enabled the project to maintain a positive cash flow and keep the house. We designed inexpensive methods to echo the historic house in a contemporary manner; such as the hand folded shingles we made that capture the tactile qualities of the earlier style. Many recycled materials are evident throughout the new cottages.
