In a delightful departure from some of TMS Architect’s other projects, TMS Principal Bill Soupcoff had an opportunity to work with long-time clients on the renovation of their Beacon Hill pied a terre. The couple are owners of a successful inn on the seacoast of New Hampshire and wanted a small apartment in Boston where they could decompress and enjoy the cultural opportunities offered by the city.
The condominium is 400 square feet and every inch has been put to good use! The historic building was originally a single family home, housing a Massachusetts governor and his family, and was the first condominium conversion on Beacon Hill. The combination of the old world charm of Beacon Hill combined with a more contemporary kitchen and bath speak eloquently to the past and the future.
The homeowner did a great deal of work on the interior himself and as he describes it, “every step was a challenge, from negotiating the correct windows with the Beacon Hill Historical Commission, to working with out-of-date electricity and plumbing.” He persevered and the results are stunning!
