David Ireland House

This 1886 residence was home to conceptual artist David Ireland and site of his most significant art installation. In addition to preserving both the building’s historic exterior and the artist-transformed interior spaces, the project includes a new four-story caretaker’s unit, basement level with artist’s archive and reading room, as well as structural and accessibility improvements throughout. The clean, simple forms of the additions create a distinction with the existing house while drawing from Ireland’s use of concrete.
