May is preservation month and this year we have two projects that have been honored by Preservation Massachusetts! The first is the Oliver Wendall Holmes Library at Phillips Academy, Andover in Andover, MA. This project was designed by Ann Beha Architects and is the recipient of the 2021 Robert H. Kuehn, Jr. Award. This award recognizes extraordinary projects that meld collaborative partnerships with creative and cutting-edge ideas for the rehabilitation and active reuse of historic buildings. The second is the Overlook at St. Gabriel’s in Brighton, MA. This project was designed by Bargmann Hendrie + Archetype and is the recipient of the 2021 May Thomas M. Menino Legacy Award. This award celebrates projects that are transformative, catalytic, embrace the community, create partnerships, and revitalize the best of the past to make something food for the future. Both these projects are also up for the 2021 People’s Preservation Choice Award!
