共济会寺庙于 2013 年遭到火灾破坏,最初建于 1926 年,并在 1970 年代进行了翻新,多年来一直无人居住,位于昆西中心的一个显眼位置。拟建的汉考克街 1170 号项目包括重新利用现有结构,将其改造成餐厅和创意办公室,并附有一个建筑敏感的新建筑组件,将容纳 66 个住宅单元。
寺庙将引入新的无障碍入口,门廊将增加露台,玻璃拱腹上方有照明,真正激活汉考克街的临街面,将神秘的寺庙变成市中心的美食目的地饮料。
新建筑与现有寺庙的双高空间相连。这是一个雕塑般的补充,其特点是高效的点加载计划和紧凑的形式,简单和最小化的立面面积。新建筑的主要材料将是砖,颜色与现有的寺庙石灰石相匹配,具有现代的整体外观,因此已成为现有新古典主义建筑的背景。
作为从主要商业圣汉考克到周围低层住宅区的过渡,在毗邻的物业之间提供了慷慨的密集规划缓冲区。一致性和多样性的谨慎平衡将有助于创造强烈的地方感。

Damaged by fire in 2013, the Masonic Temple, originally built in 1926 and renovated in 1970s has been unoccupied for years while sited in a prominent location in Quincy Center. The proposed project 1170 Hancock St consists of reusing the existing structure to be repurposed as a restaurant and creative office, and accompanied by an architecturally sensitive new construction component which will house 66 residential units.
New accessible entry will be introduced to the temple, and additoned terrace will be added to the portico with lighting above the glass soffit, to truly activate the street frontage of Hancock st and turn the mysterious Temple to a destination in the city center for food and beverage.
The new construction is connected with a double height space with the existing temple. It is a sculptural addition, characterized by an efficient, point loaded plan and compact form with simplicity and minimized facade area. The primary materials for the new construction will be brick, and color to match the existing temple limestone, a contemporary monolithic look and thus has been achieved as the backdrop of the monumental existing Neoclassical building.
Generous dense planning buffers have been provided between the abutting properties as transition from the primary commercial St - Hancock to the surrounding low rise residential neighborhoods. A careful balance of consistency and variety will help serve the effort to create a strong sense of place.
