Harvard Crimson Building
Cambridge, MA

The existing Harvard Crimson Building in Harvard Square required extensive renovation and refurbishing and the construction of a significant addition to house a modernized college newspaper operation. The design required a new interior layout that could be built  economically on a very restricted site, that could fit in the existing building and the addition required the provision of handicap accessibility features, including grade access, a new elevator and accessible toilets. The completed design, which needed a zoning variance, received the approval of all the City of Cambridge review boards and was praised as the proper way to renovate and add to an important part of Harvard Square's existing building fabric.

DiMarinisi & Wolfe provided full architectural services from program verification through completion of the construction contract.
