Hopkinton Center for the Arts

Hopkinton, MA

This project involves the adaptive re-use of a historic 1870s farm house and barn for use as a community arts center.  The new Hopkinton Center for the Arts (HCA) houses galleries, a timber-framed community theatre and backstage area, music practice rooms, fine arts classrooms, offices and kitchen areas, and a ceramics studio.  High ceilings and exposed timber beams are set against a serene color palette that is warmed by ample natural light.  The project provides all community members with an inviting space to enjoy the arts.
