Student Dormitory Building
Boston, Massachusetts


Thomas Mayo Associates was retained by Boston University to convert this elegant 5-story former townhouse located in Bostonís Back Bay into a dormitory for 20 students and a resident advisor.The major design objective was to maintain as much of the architectural detail as possible while still meeting the program requirements.The exterior was re-pointed and all windows replaced.The floor plan was only slightly modified to accommodate the required number of student and the majority of the woodwork details, such as the main stairway and the fireplaces in each room, were retained.


The building fulfills the requirements of a dormitory while visually fitting into the surrounding residential neighborhood.
