Fisher Hill Reservoir Gatehouse & Comfort Station

The project is a rehabilitation and restoration to the 1887 Fisher Hill Reservoir Gatehouse in part with the larger transformation of the existing reservoir into a public park.

The original gatehouse was the “gate” from which pumped water was received from the Chestnut Hill Reservoir High Service Pumping Station over a mile away, and then distributed to the surrounding neighborhood.

New Building in Brookline

After initiating a process which took almost 15 years, the Town of Brookline secured the ownership of the reservoir and support from the community to be re-imagined as a public park.

The Town of Brookline redeveloped the reservoir to provide a highly unique experience of history, public space and community involvement within one place. Our design team preserved and restored the history of the gatehouse and site in order to create a special sense of place unique to Brookline and the history of Boston.
