Located in downtown Amherst, Massachusetts, Boltwood Place is a mixed-use development with ground-floor retail and restaurant spaces below 12 gracious apartments. Built on a tight site, the structure meets its lot lines while still providing excellent natural light in the units through a heavily glazed southern elevation. This contemporary building’s exterior speaks two distinct design languages: the white clapboard New England vernacular on one side, and open, glassy modernism on another. Its high-quality, fine-grained aesthetic fits well with Amherst’s varied but classic architectural styles.
Holst Architecture was the Design Architect and DiMella Shaffer was the Architect of Record. Alan Jones was the Project Manager for Holst Architecture.
