St Hedwigs Church
Cambridge, Massachusetts

St Hedwigs Church, closed by the Archdiocese in 1994, was converted to residential condominiums in 1998. On a very urban site, with minimal setbacks on all 4 sides, the challenge of this project was creating units that would take advantage of every opportunity to bring sunlight into the interior spaces. The original high vaulted ceiling was retained to give 23' ceilings in the living rooms and the original vaulted side windows were enlarged to maximize the amount of natural daylight. The spaces above the vault became sky lit loft space. The cantilevered walkway on the side gives each unit a private entry through the original arched window openings. Parking for each unit is below grade, in the basement.
