Back Bay Townhouse, Boston
Built around 1870, D’Aquino Monaco restored this Back Bay townhouse to its original stature as a single family residence. The design approach embraced the rich history of the Boston townhouse while adding a contemporary design sensibility. The decorative and architectural detailing create a design dialogue that invites you through the home with details such as the custom iron railing design, and the polychrome carpeted stair which speaks to the palate of each floor. By relocating the back service stair and celebrating it as a part of the room, we were able to create an entire great room within the kitchen; which is now a gathering place for the family.
