Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

Boston, MA

Type of project: Ground-up, Addition, Preservation
Duration of Project: 28 months (pre-construction) / 26 months (construction)
Square footage: 71,000 sf
Partners: Renzo Piano Building Workshop / Stantec (Burt Hill)

Noteworthy: By creating new spaces for both visual and performing arts and moving visitor amenities such as the café and gift shop to the addition, the feeling of the original Museum as a private, in-home collection was reestablished.
