Handlin, Garrahan, Zachos & Associates

Handlin, Garrahan, Zachos & Associates is an architecture firm, founded in 2002 based in Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The firm has three partners: David Handlin, John Garrahan, Elizabeth Zachos, and it has designed residences, museums, educational buildings and private residences. To date, their most notable works have been the entrance to the Museum of Fine Arts, an admission center at the prestigious Phillips Academy, and the changes made to the Massachusetts State House in order to make it accessibility compliant. In 2006, the firm was developing affordable housing on Martha's Vineyard, an area most famous to outsiders for the mansions of the wealthy who reside there in the summer, but which is also home to year-round, lower-income people working in the fishing and tourism industries. It is to address the needs of the latter that this project is being developed. [http://www.mvtimes.com/news/2006/10/12/chilmark_affordable_housing.php]
