Adams House Renovation

Adams House Renovation – Phase 1 – Claverly Hall (63 Mt Auburn Street)

Claverly Hall June 2021.
  • In June 2019, the Harvard House Renewal program team began a multi-phase renovation of the Adams House undergraduate residential complex.
  • Phase one of the Adams House renewal included renovations of Claverly Hall and Senior House to preserve their history and character while improving its functionality, accessibility, and student-life offerings.
  • As of Spring 2021, the renovation work on Claverly House was complete and students moved into the building in August 2021.
  • Linden Street was re-opened to the public and through traffic. Pedestrians should continue to use caution as construction activities are ongoing next door at Randolph Hall adjacent to Linden Street.

Adams House Renovation – Phase 2 – Apthorp House (10 Linden Street)

  • Apthorp House serves as the Adams House Faculty Dean’s residence. The home underwent an extensive refurbishment to include the building’s mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems along with structural improvements, while also adding accessibility and updating interior spaces.
  • The project’s intent was to steward Apthorp House into the twenty-first century, while remaining sympathetic to the original design and historic building technologies employed in its construction. The project was complete in July 2021.
