Windhill Building

New Construction

The Windhill Building is part of a historic streetscape along Market Street in downtown Ipswich, Massachusetts. The original historic building was burned to the ground, and Cummings Architects designed the new building in the Georgian style to retain this important neighborhood feel. The building is of mixed use, creating diversity within the marketplace. It includes Windhill Realty on the first floor, and Windhill Construction and rental office space on the second. The concept was developed to look at buildings through time that will be added on in a natural manner. The front, in blue, is designed as though it was an original Georgian home later retrofitted as a storefront during the Victorian era. The rear is in factory style, mimicking the buildings that once lined the Ipswich River.
