Goddard House

Goddard House is a home for elderly established at the turn of the century by Robert Goddard, inventor of the rocket. The board of directors at Goddard House, in keeping with the spirit of the founder, chose to expand their facility through the addition of a new 18 unit apartment building and the renovation of the existing building.

Douglas Okun & Associates has completed the master plan, the construction for a new 16,000 sq ft residential building, and a majority of the renovation of the existing structure. In this project, the clients expressed a desire for simple cost units which would compliment the lush site. Our response employed a delicate bridge, allowing the two masses to sit comfortably apart on the site.

Building Type: Assisted Living
Location: Worcester, MA
