You'd never guess this eclectic 1950s home started out as a humdrum municipal garage.
In the late 1950s, acclaimed architect Paul Rudolph transformed an ordinary, oversized garage into a brilliant home, now known as the Rudolph House. While the beloved dwelling in Cambridge, Massachusetts, has remained virtually untouched since winning a Record Houses award in 1960, it was recently treated to thoughtful renovation by Ruhl Studio Architects.
“We were tasked with bringing the house up to current energy efficiency standards and with reorganizing the house to accommodate the new owners’ more contemporary needs, while also respecting the noteworthy original design,” explains the award-winning firm.
