MATTATUCK MUSEUM MASTER PLAN
The Mattatuck Museum, founded in 1877, is a cultural center dedicated to exploring connections between art and regional history. Prominently located on the town’s main green, the museum’s four-story brick building dates to 1912, when it held a theater on the ground floor and a secretive Masonic temple on an upper story. A courtyard and entrance were added to the building in 1985. ABA is spearheading the building’s first renovation in more than 30 years.
Prior to renovation and expansion, ABA prepared a master plan for the museum, providing a comprehensive approach to the museum’s space utilization and a compelling vision for its building program and Waterbury presence. The plan proposed both renovations and a new addition to overcome physical limitations and promote the museum’s urban identity.
