Honorable Mention, Adaptive Restoration: The Cistern
A minimal approach was taken to repurpose the 90-year-old decommissioned drinking water reservoir cistern into a destination and civic art space that is accessible and enjoyable. Soft LED lighting from the entry tunnel continues in transparent handrails around the perimeter of the 221 concrete columns within 87,500 square feet.
Honorable Mention, Adaptive Restoration: Fisher Hill Reservoir Park Gatehouse
Architect: Touloukian Touloukian Inc. Location: Brookline, MA
This former reservoir was acquired by a local municipality to serve as a new soccer field. The original 1887 gatehouse became a restroom and the restoration includes full masonry re-pointing, roof and window replacement—a thoughtful marriage of the historic and the modern to preserve a strong sense of place.
