In Part II of a tour along Commonwealth Avenue in Boston, architect Patrick Ahearn, FAIA, revisits some of his favorite projects he has built and renovated in the neighborhood of Back Bay, and explains the design details he chose to blend the buildings into the historical fabric of the city.
This is Part II of a two-part video. Watch Part I here.
The ICAA is excited to bring attention to the classical and traditional architectural and design elements, decisions, and features that make the places we live more welcoming and beautiful, as part of our new In Your Neighborhood series.
We welcome additional entries, and want to hear from you!

In the previous episode of In Your Neighborhood, architect Patrick Ahearn, FAIA, introduced viewers to Commonwealth Avenue, which forms the backbone of the historic Boston neighborhood of Back Bay, and connects the Boston Common and Public Garden to the rest of the "Emerald Necklace" network of public spaces. In Part II, Patrick explains how the area's architectural character influenced his design choices as he redeveloped and built properties in Back Bay, starting in 1975 and eventually going on to complete 400 projects in the neighborhood.
classicism at home,
in your neighborhood
