Finegold Alexander Architects Wins AIA New England Design Award for The Lucas
The Lucas, designed by Finegold Alexander Architects received an Honor Award at the 2018 AIA New England Design Awards. The Lucas is the transformation of a shuttered 1874 German Trinity Catholic Church. The concept is a building within a building - a steel and glass design that rises out of the massive stone walls to create a 33-unit residential community. The eight-story glass and steel building bursts through the former church’s roof with steel columns continuing the lines of the stone buttresses skyward.
The AIA jury noted: “The jury was intrigued by this adaptive reuse project, excited by the move of hollowing out a church and inserting an entirely new building. Reimagining the flying buttress for the twenty-first century could have been corny or clunky; however, these interpretations in steel subtly work. The addition is clearly contemporary, but in deference to the existing structure, a success in preservation.”
Each of the 1 to 3-bedroom units are completely individualized, based on unique architectural details. The existing Victorian Gothic features of the stone walls, tower, and arched windows are seamlessly blended with contemporary glass and steel. The design team sought to marry the old and new by retaining the architecturally significant landmark’s tracery windows, front doors, and other artifacts.
