Wellesley College Jewett Arts Center Window Replacement
Sorensen Partners is Architect and OPM for the restoration of the Music Building windows in the historically-significant Jewett Arts Center by American modernist Paul Rudolph. Summer 2019 construction is replacement of a single 12-foot high by 3-foot wide window based on detailed measurements and examination of record drawings.
As a part of the design process, the team removed the historic window in-tact and measured and shipped it to Tradewood for detailed measurement. The historic ‘artifact’ window will be stored at Jewett for further study by students.
The new window is fabricated in mahogany with the original operable metal windows re-glazed, re-finished, and re-installed. New flashing and sills and small modifications to the design of the exterior wood glazing stops create a durable long-term installation for the replacement window.
