Built in the 1800’s as a residence, the G.A.R. Hall is located in the heart of downtown Worcester. An assembly hall was added when G.A.R., the building’s second owner, acquired the property. LPA was hired by the City of Worcester to design masonry, slate roof, and infrastructure improvements to restore and stabilize the structure. More recently, LPA was commissioned to design the conversion to an upscale restaurant featuring a variety of dining spaces, bar and commercial kitchen. The design highlights the historic and unique features of the building while adding accessibility and all the contemporary appurtenances required for a restaurant. The project received a preservation award from the Massachusetts Historical Commission.
