The Lee Apartments project is a renovation/change of use project from a nursing home to luxury apartments in the town of Lee, MA. The building has been vacant for about 15 years, and is currently being used as storage for a local contractor. It sits in the middle of a residential neighborhood, giving us the challenge of making sure it blends in with its surroundings and doesn’t make the residents of the street feel overshadowed. The project consists of 21 apartment units: (13) 2-bedroom units and (8) 1-bedroom units. We designed a new front entrance canopy to make the building seem more welcoming and residential in style.
