Morville House BOSTON, MA
Combining a new 30-unit addition with major upgrades to 146 existing senior apartments, the 1971-built Morville House has been given a new life. Located in Boston’s active Fenway and Symphony Hall area, the new tower was designed to reduce shadow impacts on neighboring historic housing. New high-tech window and wall systems, combined with new mechanical systems throughout the existing complex, contribute to a highly energy-efficient design that has dramatically reduced energy costs. Relocation of the mechanical systems allowed expansion of community facilities, including a better connected library and meeting rooms, an Arts & Crafts Studio, and Information and Fitness Centers.
