The Point Allerton House is situated directly in front of the outcropping of ledge that hosts Boston Harbor's iconic Boston Light. The interior plan was carefully arranged to maximize views out to the Light, and windows were carefully calibrated to optimize views from seated positions inside of the house.
The project was a complete transformation of a modest structure on an extraordinary site. HMA took every view, plane, horizon line and view corridor into consideration in planning the floor plan and sill height of all of the windows. The result is a house that is extraordinary in effect for the size of its footprint.
