Gardner buildings slated for demolition
Here are photos of the carriage house and greenhouses that leaders of the Gardner Museum plan to tear down as part of their planned renovation and expansion of the Boston institution. Last week the Massachusetts Supreme Court ruled that the project was within the bounds of Isabella Stewart Gardner’s will and can go forward.
The top photo show’s Gardner’s Italianate palazzo (right), which will remain but will have a hole cut through a wall to create a new entrance into the building, and the carriage house (in the trees at left) that will be demolished. The second photo shows the carriage house. The third photo shows the carriage house again and (at left) the back of the palazzo. The fourth photo shows the carriage house and the greenhouses. The last photo shows the greenhouses.
