Woodland Harmony

A 1960s Boston house designed by Hamilton-born Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor and architect Maurice Smith is advertised as for sale in the Boston Herald. “This Weston contemporary is built to harmonize with its 1.8-acre wooded setting and create a warm, inviting feel,” describes the newspaper. “Constructed in 1965, the home has a Douglas fir exterior with many triangular windows. [The house] has a Scandinavian look — with lots of wood, brick and glass, balconies off every bedroom and custom-crafted furniture and built-ins throughout. The house is organized into a series of connected sections.” Smith lives in Harvard, Massachusetts. He was born in 1926.
