Historic Stick-style House

Built in 1894, this historic Stick-style house in Cambridge, Mass. was originally part of an expansive estate owned by Gardiner Greene Hubbard, a lawyer who became the first president of National Geographic Magazine. His daughter married Alexander Graham Bell in the garden. Woodrow Wilson’s daughter later owned the house. Meyer & Meyer was commissioned by the new homeowners to better accommodate their active young family. The whole-house renovation included demolition of a small kitchen and its replacement with a gable-ended addition housing a new French-inspired SieMatic kitchen. The original paneling and woodwork was restored to its original state, filled in where missing, and complemented with new paint colors and hand-painted wall coverings and furniture. The project scope involved conversion of an upstairs office into a master bedroom-bathroom suite, renovation of all bathrooms, enhanced closet space, and an excavation below the house to create a new family room and guest suite with 10-foot-high ceilings.
