NADAAA is thrilled to announce our collaboration with Historic New England in an exploration of the Otis House Complex. The complex is located in Boston’s West End and is comprised of a 226-year-old mansion designed by Charles Bulfinch and two connected row houses built c. 1840. The original house is a National Historic Landmark and serves as a house museum with the row houses offering support spaces.

“We’re excited about NADAAA’s understanding of the context and potential of Otis House, how it could become an exciting, fully civic gateway visitor experience for Historic New England, and play a meaningful role in the vitality of the neighborhood.”

-Vin Cipolla, President and CEO of Historic New England

“Beyond its importance for Boston, Otis House represents something for New England more broadly as it embodies a piece of urban fabric in all its facets: its architecture, interiors, furniture, and artifacts all tell a story that extends the social importance of a dynamic community that is always in a state of transformation. The diversity that is embedded in the site is an important reminder of who we are today, how we interpret our history, and moreover, how we allow this special institution to tell new stories to future generations. We strongly believe that the combination of strategic planning, creative programming, and thoughtful transformations will bring a renewed sense of relevance to this historic jewel.”

-Nader Tehrani
