refurbishing an 18th century brownstone


ZVI performed a historical refurbishment of an eighteenth century brownstone for the esteemed New England College of Optometry. We transformed the space into classrooms, labs, and offices.  The project culminated with a dramatic architectural bay-lite, set atop of the property’s beautifully restored historic stairwell.  This 14,000 square foot gut renovation included the shoring of the property’s historic façade and interior walls, the enactment of a modern design and building system, and the implementation of ornate architectural details including the ceiling, flooring, and custom woodwork.
