Project name: Courtyard House
Project location: Cambridge, Massachusetts
Firm name: Anmahian Winton Architects
Jury comments: Courtyard House sets an example for contemporary infill on a tight lot in the context of a historic neighborhood–a common problem for residential architects. Its form, massing, and materials don’t compete with its neighbors; rather, it nestles comfortably among them. This new home is as thoughtful on its interior as it is on its exterior, with thoughtful detailing, quality materials, and clever organization. Courtyard House is a success.
