Newton Architect, Chris Chu, is collaborating with the team from This Old House to magically transform a Newton home. The home is located on Islington Peninsula in the Auburndale Village in Newton, MA. Islington Penninsula is surrounded by the Charles River and borders the Norumbega Park. It is a sylvan spot with lovely homes spotted along the banks of the river.
Since she was a small child, Chris has loved the natural world. She has an affinity for designing a home to graciously live in and with the natural setting. She has a vision that combines beauty with functionality in graceful union.
“Building a house and shaping the spaces that surround it is a purposeful manipulation of the natural world, an active attempt to inhabit the land and make it our own.”
