Re: Boston Conservatory

Boston Conservatory is holding a grand opening of its new building this week. Admission to the 'Opening Note' musical production requires a $35 ticket, but tours of the new building are free Friday and Saturday afternoon.

Re: Boston Conservatory

That's cool! Two of my friends live next door (one of whose bedroom window is in the photo, directly above the door to the right of the building). I think they had issues with noise during non-work hours (before 7AM or after 8PM or on weekends) at first, but they were rectified pretty quickly. I imagine that it's probably a bit quieter without the parking lot there.

Re: Boston Conservatory

Isn't the shiny-panelling-coupled-with-glass-equals-modern aesthetic ready to die already? This construction looks dated from the get-go. It's not bad so much as it is underambitious.

Re: Boston Conservatory

This building looks sorta like a mini version of the Tufts Dental School addition on Washington and Kneeland.

Re: Boston Conservatory

Way too clunky. Not terrible but certainly not elegant.

Re: Boston Conservatory

The addition looks great. It's the old part of the building (this of all things gets preserved?) that ruins the look.

Re: Boston Conservatory

It's really chunky, as in it kind of overwhelms the street with its sheer-rise blockiness. There are some walk-ups nearby which approach its height, but none on it's side of the block and as a result it sticks out a bit too much. Walking up or down Hemmenway, it's impossible to not notice it.

Re: Boston Conservatory

A significant academic building alongside brownstones is going to stand out. I think it does so in a fairly benign way. The scale is not overwhelming and as others have alluded, its a pretty restrained design--maybe a bit too restrained. But I like it.
