McLean & Parker. I got to meet the architect as she was leaving the house. She said she was shooting for a LEED rating of platinum, i.e. super duper energy efficient and environmentally kind. The house is used not just for living, not just for working, but also for community gatherings. The space to the left of the main entry was hollowed out to create a huge double-height meeting space, all modern stylings, while she kept the top floor true to it’s original 1912 style. The renovations are still underway; eventually those aluminum rails will wrap around the house. Barbara, if you read this and care to say more about the project, please do!
