Historic
Chestnut Hill Waterworks
Chestnut Hill Waterworks, Chestnut Hill, MA
Brown, Richardson + Rowe designed the grounds for the adaptive re-use of Chestnut Hill Waterworks. Once occupied by a 19th century pumping station and accompanying carriage house, the site now houses the Metropolitan Waterworks Museum, a wellness/community center, a daycare center, and both high end residential and affordable housing. With the installation of these 21st century facilities, our firm sought to protect the Waterworks’ rich history and beautiful setting. The design maintains Olmsted’s Brother's pastoral landscape of large oak trees and rolling lawn, and the original views to the complex are virtually unchanged.
