Project name: Center for the Arts
Project location: North Andover, MA
Firm name: Ann Beha Architects
Jury comments: At once contextual and contemporary, this arts center maintains the vernacular of its neighbors, but adds a modern slant. Gabled ends evoke local historic architecture while abundant glass brings in light and a contemporary aesthetic. Users enjoy views both in and out. The design creates open dialogue between new and existing.
