Hopkinton, MA – Gorman Richardson Lewis Architects, GRLA, continues its 25-year relationship with the Hopkinton Center for the Arts with the renovations to the historic Terry Farmhouse.
The 1850 farmhouse, which has been well-used over the years for art and music instruction and includes a longstanding ceramics studio, is being updated to expand the open area on the first floor to better accommodate the ceramics classes. The second floor is being renovated to provide more music instruction rooms with improved soundproofing, access, and all new finishes and lighting.
The exterior will be completely rehabilitated with new windows, doors, siding and trim, as well as a new roof and added insulation. The exterior stairs will be relocated to the rear of the building to provide an opportunity to bring the north elevation back to its original window configuration. The ramp will be rebuilt to provide compliance with ADA regulations and to be accessible directly from dedicated HC parking spaces.
The Hopkinton Community Preservation Commission is funding the exterior renovations while a grant from the Mass Cultural Council is funding renovations to the interior. Completion of both projects is slated for late summer 2021.
