Weschsler and Schimenti | Honorable Mention | Extant | Hollis | Office Building | 1961 |
The Toy & Novelty Workers building is a two-story complex of beige brick with striking decorative elements of sky blue enamel panels and a yellow metal decorative screen. The original signage remains on the building but it seems to house a daycare center now. It is a fitting repurposing of a toy-making union and the decorative details harmonize well with the playground equipment now present in the entrance courtyard.
Ferrenz and Taylor | Bronze Plaque for Religious Buildings | Extant | Hollis | Religious Building | 1960 |
This neo-Gothic structure has been lovingly maintained by its congregation since construction, it sits on an irregularly shaped parcel presenting its main entrance on a small triangular open space. The exterior walls are granite stone with limestone trim and the steep roof is tiled in slate. The cross on the top is gold, although tarnished. The sanctuary is open and airy with Douglas fir paneling and trusses and the walls remain painted in a bright pastel as originally designed.
