51 Hillhouse Avenue

The $4 million total gut interior renovation of this 9,950 sf building was comprehensive and complex. Located on what was described by both Charles Dickens and Mark Twain as “the most beautiful street in America”, this robust Italianate-Victorian mansion is attributed to noted Antebellum-era architect Henry Austin, and is on the National Historic Register.

The project involved a near complete reconstruction of the foundation, superstructure and interior architecture. The newly-designed interior now holds a world-class archaeomagnetic laboratory, teaching labs, a seminar room, and faculty offices. The building's HVAC, electrical, lighting, fire protection systems were replaced, and architectural elements were repaired with special attention to preserving and repairing historic ornament, millwork, and furnishing inside.
