To expand the McMullen Museum of Art, Boston College relocated it to a landmark 1927 Renaissance Revival building on Commonwealth Avenue. The project included renovating the existing 23,000 sq ft space and constructing a 6,000 sq ft three-story, glass-enclosed addition. Working with the architect, SGH consulted on the building enclosure and developed strategies to control condensation in the humidified galleries.
