2021 Preservation Connecticut

Merit Award 

This historic apartment building c.1915 stood derelict and abandoned for 25 years in downtown New Britain, Connecticut before an extensive renovation enabled it to become a showpiece once again. During those years of abandonment, the building suffered vandals, squatters, feral animals, broken and missing windows and  extensive roof leakage. The building now houses twenty low-income families and four formerly homeless veterans.

Our firm sought to honor the building's  classical planning and detailing like marble and terrazzo finishes, dumb-waiter and mail chute. Many of these features were retained and restored during the renovation and contribute to the distinct character of the building.
