FRENCH REVIVAL HOUSE (UNBUILT)
CONCORD, MASSACHUSETTS

(w/Dell Mitchell Architects)

The client requested a French style home for a growing family in the MetroWest suburb of Concord, Massachusetts. At 11,400 sf and originally intended to be clad in precast concrete modular units to imitate cut limestone, it was later resurfaced in hand molded brick, with precast concrete trim, including the quoins (outside corner trim).

The interiors were developed with typical 18th century French details, including boiserie paneling and French classical detailing. The design of this manor home was inspired by the hotel particulier, notably the current Rodin Museum in Paris, as the basic form and plan organization model.

Interior axes were oriented toward exterior views, and the landscaping grounds were organized in a formal architectural manner a la Francaise, with strong axes, open lawns, formal gardens, and follies as landmarks and terminus points.
