After competing in a design charrette in Boston, OEA has won the commission to design the museum renovations and expansions planned for the historic 200-acre museum and park in Ellsworth, Maine. The Bangor Daily News summarizes the selection process in this article, and the Hancock County Trustees of Public Reservations’ (i.e., governing board of Woodlawn) provides a detailed description of the entire project in its press release.
Concept design is now complete for the Martha's Vineyard Museum. This concludes the initial design process of the renovation and addition to the 1897 Historic Marine Hospital, a site that was purchased as a result of recommendations made in our 2011 feasibility study for the Museum. See plans and renderings of the design on our project page.
OEA’s selection as architect for the new museum facility was announced at the gala event, located on the front lawn of the Marine Hospital site in Vineyard Haven. The Vineyard Gazette describes the event as the largest in its 15-year run.
