Continental Terrace Condos – 29 Concord Avenue Cambridge MA

If you’ve never been inside 29 Concord Avenue in Cambridge you’re in for a treat.

Continental Terrace, 29 Concord Ave. Cambridge – Hugh Stubbins Architect

29 Concord Ave Condos Designed in 1959 by internationally renowned modernist architect Hugh Stubbins Jr. of Cambridge, the Continental Terrace building has a dramatic central atrium that rises eight stories.  Fifty years after its construction, the building  feels totally modern and entering the soaring lobby still has a dramatic impact. 

Hugh Stubbins (1912-2006) graduated from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design. Early in his career he affiliated with the firm of Royal Barry Wills, one of my favorite local architects, well known for very traditional colonial reproductions. Stubbins introduced Wills to Modernism and they designed several Modernist houses together.  Walter Gropius invited Stubbins to teach at Harvard in 1940 where he remained for 15 years while simultaneously working in his own architecture firm.  Stubbins left Harvard in 1954 to devote himself to his own practice.

Inside the condos at 29 Concord Avenue Cambridge

29 Concord Avenue is an elevator building with just over 100 condominums on eight floors.  Condos are accessed from walkways that overlook the dramatic skylit atrium. Floor plans include studios (avg. ~ 400 sq.ft.), one-bedrooms (avg. ~ 500 sq.ft.) and two-bedrooom condominiums (avg. ~ 850 sq.ft.).  Originally designed with small kitchens outfitted with enameled metal cabinets and apartment size appliances, many of the condo owners have renovated their units.  Well designed, the condos pack a lot of storage space into a compact layout.  Sliders lead to outside balconies which were recently refurbished in the course of a major buildings improvements project.  Heat is included in the condo fee.

Some of the condos have parking spaces, covered or uncovered, behind the bulding.  The Red Line subway in Harvard Square is an easy walk and the bus and electric trolley run in front of the building on Concord Avenue.

Other Buildings Designed by Architect Hugh Stubbins Jr

 Over the course of his career Stubbins and his firm designed more than 800 buildings in eight countries.  Many of the firm’s projects were done for schools and colleges.  Among their projects were the:

  • Congress Hall in Berlin, Germany (1957)
  • Citicorp Center in New York City (1976-78)
  • Federal Reserve Bank in Boston (1978)
  • Ronald Reagan Presidential Library (1991)
