Harvard Business School Wilder House
LLB Architects has worked with Harvard Business School for several years on the renovation and upgrades to some of the School’s buildings. In the Fall of 2013, LLB was asked to study, evaluate and assess the historic Wilder House in order to make the building ADA compliant in a manner that offered disabled students the same facilities and amenities as the rest of the student body. The project included the renovation of the first floor to include accessible entries, work stations, and conference rooms; interior renovations to the rest of the house included the re-configuration of spaces to accommodate displaced staff from the first floor.On the exterior, the renovations and restorations focused on simple placemaking gestures. The areas of primary focus included window replacement, re-pointing the brick, and significant restoration to the wood trim details.
