Abby Suckle Architects | Boardman Residence
An interior renovation project by Abby Suckle Architects on 1957 House that was originally designed by John Nickols, this is an interior renovation. The plan was reconfigured to enlarge the public space by opening the kitchen. A new master bedroom suite was created.
Innovative for its day, the challenge of this project was to give the house a makeover, respect the original design and design intent and enhance it by bringing the house back to what it was. It was done on a budget.
The house was published in Dwell-June, 2006 (Houses We Love). It received an Interiors Citation from the Boston Society of Architects and an Honor Award for Renovation from the Society for American Registered Architects in 2006. It was exhibited at Build Boston in November, 2006.
The Boardmans’ house in Carlisle, Massachusetts, may have begun its life as an outcast but has since taken kindly to its wooded surroundings.
