BOSTON, MA, UNITED STATES, December 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — As we round out 2020, New England Design & Construction (NEDC) has been selected as one of Boston’s premier Architectural Design Build Firms by Boston Architect – www.bostonarchitect.org.
After fifteen years in existence, New England Design and Construction is one of the Qualified Remodeler Top 500 firms and the winner of Eastern Massachusetts NARI Gold and Silver Contractor of the Year Awards, a PRISM Gold Award, and a Silver Contractor of the Year Award for residential projects.
A uniquely creative Architectural Design Build firm grounded in sustainable aesthetics and luxury home design, NEDC recently began designing and retrofitting a client home in Somerville, Massachusetts to Passive House standards–a challenge that is ground breaking even for Boston, a city known internationally for its willingness to push boundaries and innovate.
A multi-ethnic, young, talented team of creatives with diverse backgrounds stand proudly at the core of NEDC’s design team–many whose families immigrated to New England over the past few generations from a varied array of cultural backgrounds. These creative artists and artisans have since risen through some of Boston and New England’s top design universities and Architectural schools–they are now remaking environmental awareness and sustainable design standards.
NEDC Designs are characterized by reclaimed wood, open spaces, natural light and minimalistic beauty as they seek to reduce the carbon footprint and reverse the impact of human dwelling design on the environment–all while producing a unique and striking elegance for their clients. Having designed and built multiple celebrity and high-end luxury homes in Boston, NEDC’s creative team is in high demand with a waiting list that is steadily growing.

Recently Featured NEDC Project: Colonial Mansion, Wellesley Massachusetts.
This 7,246 square foot Colonial mansion was constructed in 2011 by MLB outfielder Carl Crawford during his unexpectedly brief tenure with the Boston Red Sox. The newly-built, five-bedroom, six-bathroom mansion in Wellesley included a game room, batting cage and full home theatre. In a turn of fate, Crawford’s contract was purchased by the Los Angeles Dodgers midseason and the home was suddenly put on the market. The challenge suddenly became how to adapt this custom home to a proper family dwelling–now home to several small children.
NEDC and David Supple designed a custom home addition entrance that would step down as a gradual transition from the interior living spaces of the home into the tranquil sanctity of the landscaping–while acting as a warm receipt point for guests and family entering the home. A custom, upholstered banquette provides for a variety of functions–from casual dining and work from home to children’s play. The custom addition, while smaller than the initial home construction footprint, plays a prominent role in visitors’ initial view of the home. The barrel copper roof is a striking custom design feature and in keeping with the traditional Boston architecture of the home; it is reminiscent in a way of the Massachusetts State House–elegant yet warm and inviting. As an additional touch, the cantilevered exterior roof is a rich mahogany.
As one steps into the home, the beautiful curved plank ceiling is highlighted by a stunning light fixture reminiscent of a starry constellation. The stone parquet floor tile is elegant and lends beauty to this transition space as one enters the home. Tall windows fill the exterior walls, flooding the interior with natural light and giving one a glimpse of the exceptional external beauty and tranquility the property affords.
