Millwork One is awarded Harvard University dormitory project

Millwork One has recently been awarded the Harvard University Dunster House project. We look forward to another successful renovation at Harvard, this one with Turner Construction as the General Contractor. Kierian Timberlake Associates, who previously provided architectural services for the Old Quincy House and Leverett McKinlock Hall dormitory renovations, is also of the team working on the Dunster project.
Dunster’s new and expanded social and common spaces include a technologically equipped “smart” classroom aimed at bringing faculty members and teaching into the house; an art studio and music practice space; a grille-common room complex; a game room; student kitchen; a lounge connected to the courtyard; and a seminar room. Much of the space for recreation, fitness and exercise facilities will be created by converting existing squash courts to their new uses. A notable new feature in this project is clusters of rooms along horizontal corridors, complimenting the traditional vertical entryways; this feature improves circulation within the House and, according to the Architect and Administrators, contributes to stronger connections among resident tutors and the students that they advise.
