Watch Hill Inn
This architecturally significant inn, cozened up to Narragansett Bay in the shoreline community of Watch Hill was in need of restoration and modernization to make it code compliant and economically competitive within New England’s premier inns and restaurants.
RGB’s award winning design took an attractive, yet worn and dated structure, and turned it into the beautiful classic architectural gem represented in the accompanying photographs. Beautifully detailed ramps and stairs create a strong plinth from which the delicately detailed porches and railings can shine, capped by historic rooflines and dormers.
RGB analyzed this site on the Providence River, between the Manchester Street Power Plant and future Heritage Harbor Museum, formerly the Power Plant Generator Building. Our design scheme featured a total of 134 dwelling units including 113 two-bedroom units, 21 one-bedroom units and 219 parking spaces is proposed, in addition to 200 office parking spaces.

Seawinds Condos on Block Island
Set amongst the pastoral landscape of windswept Block Island, are the Seawind Condominiums, a village-like cluster of shingle style townhouses, designed by RGB to fit into their natural environment.
Each unit consists of 3 bedrooms, a tasteful period styled kitchen with modern amenities, living and dining rooms oriented to take advantage of the spectacular views, and a detached garage.
RGB, along with the owner and the Town of New Shoreham, built into the project an affordable apartment of similar proportions to the townhouse units.
