Project name: Fisher Hill Reservoir Gatehouse and Comfort Station
Project location: Brookline, Massachusetts
Firm name: Touloukian Touloukian
Jury comments: A carefully restored 1887 gatehouse becomes a new comfort station that uses its historic facade as inspiration for a decidedly contemporary community amenity. The textural relationship between stone and wood—the permanent juxtaposed with the temporary—creates warmth and a strong sense of place.
