Graduate School & Conference Center, Historic Rehabilitation, Additions, and Adaptive Reuse
Project completed by Arcove founder, Tracy Kozak as Project Manager for all buildings and Project Designer for Tupper Manor while employed at JSA Design. Architect of Record: JSA Design.
Aging historic buildings on this north shore Boston campus were rehabilitated and repurposed for establishing Endicott College’s new Graduate School of Business. The historic Italianate mansion, Tupper Hall was designed by acclaimed Boston architect Guy Lowell and built in 1905-1906 as Allanbank, a summer home for Mr. and Mrs. Bryce J. Allan, founders of the Canadian company Allan Shipping Lines. Decades of changing use had taken a toll on the historic elements. This building has now been fully restored in accordance with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation, with a new glass conservatory addition at the east terrace overlooking the ocean. The surrounding midcentury buildings were also repurposed and rehabilitated. Building envelopes and MEP systems were improved for enhanced energy efficiencies, and structural frames strengthened to meet current seismic codes. Historic details were incorporated at the new additions to create continuity with the style of the original estate. The resulting buildings form a cohesive frame to the campus allée and focal lawn.
