Approximately 85 members and friends (many of them Deck House owners) toured two renovated    

    Deck Houses in Concord, Massachusetts, on a glorious fall afternoon. They were able to    

    experience the houses brought back to life. Eve Isenberg, the architect for both renovations

    provided a presentation highlighting the value of the houses, showing the process with before and

    after images, and providing details.  Special guest Robert Brownell, co-founder of the Deck House

    company, was present.

    Eve’s  presentation began with a statistic provided by a contractor estimating the number of    

    dumpsters filled by the demolition of a Deck House: 14. The homes are part of a mid-century

    modern neighborhood in a western suburb of Boston, Massachusetts. Eve spoke to the value of

    these houses and neighborhoods and cited a quote by David Fixler -

    “Massachusetts in fact has the richest and most diverse variety of Modern neighborhoods, some of    

    which are the most architecturally influential and significant to be found anywhere in the world.”
