Rudolph house

This mid century modern house in Cambridge Massachusetts by well known Architect Paul Rudolph redesigned by Ruhl Walker Architects and constructed by S+H Constructions in order to follow the current energy efficiency standards and accomondate the new owners.

“The renovation resulted in a comfortable modern home that pays great homage its mid-century past”

Organizationally, the central living space was preserved while the side wings were reorganized to suit the specific needs of the family. The kitchen was relocated from an enclosed side room to one side wall of the main central living space.

To house the book collection of the studious family, a leaky fiberglass roof above an existing “winter garden” was replaced with an insulated glazing system to allow year-round library use and improved natural day lighting.  Structural improvements were required throughout to bring the house up to current building standards. The work included the redesign of the exterior walls, glazing and the roof received insulation. All new energy efficient heating and cooling equipment, including heat recovery ventilation, was installed to bring the home up to modern standards.  The result was much greater energy efficiency and thermal comfort for the family.
