Home of the Year Awards: Generation Green

Set into a mature Boston-area neighborhood, this sophisticated home offers efficient use of space, expression through form and a myriad of green features.

DESIGNED TO ACCOMMODATE two or three family generations, this 2,900-square-foot home features paired living spaces on the first and second levels, each with separate kitchens and living rooms. These are highlighted on the front façade by window systems that wrap the corners of the house. An open stair with acrylic treads and glass rails winds from the basement to the third floor, channeling natural light down through the home and connecting all the levels.

The home includes both a modern form and palette of materials, using durable cedar and fiber cement siding. The street side offers a permeable parking area with an electric charging station, while at the home’s entrance, an acrylic overhang shelters foot traffic from rain. The glazed entry door opens into the family foyer, with access to the rear outdoor living space.
