Private Dwellings

The Wheeler Residence

South End, Boston, MA

A 600-square-foot renovation of a South End townhouse creates a dramatic stage-set-like assemblage of dining room, library, living room, grand stair and entry vestibule. The space is to be used for parties, private living and quiet meditation. Sparse and simple in detail, yet playful in form, the house was selected as a backdrop to Crate and Barrel's furniture advertising campaign.
