59 Charlesfield Street


59 Charlesfield Street at Brown University was a renovation of a three story building for the Thomas J. Watson Jr. Institute for International and Public Affairs. The building was built in 1877 as a private residence for William O. Fuller, a prominent musician and teacher in Providence at the time.

The building was renovated into offices and conference space for the Watson Institute Public Policy Program. An elevator was added for accessibility, while keeping the original grand staircase and rebuilding secondary staircase for code compliance. The third floor was renovated into meeting and study spaces for students. Historic details and finishes were replicated throughout including flooring, tile, trim, and light fixtures.
