Brookline, sprinkled with historic colonial homes, may seem like an unlikely town in which to build modern architecture. There is a trend, however, in building bold and abstract designs now more than ever. In this class, we will discuss clean and sleek design that doesn’t overwhelm the landscape or stand out too much in more classical neighborhoods around Brookline. We’ll look at photos and share the benefits of modern design that is subtle, restrained, and yet respects its more classical neighboring homes on the outside. Marcus founded Marcus Gleysteen Architects (MGa) which is a full service architectural firm specializing in residential design.
