South End remodel: Rear window

Floor-to-ceiling glass revamps a Victorian town house.

WHILE OVERSEEING THE RECENT RENOVATION of a South End town house, architects Pamela Butz and Jeffrey Klug couldn’t have asked for a better commute. The husband-and-wife architects, principals of the South End firm Butz + Klug, live on the same street as the project.

Their clients, a design-savvy couple who have lived in cities around the world, bought the five-story town house in July 2009. They had moved to Lincoln when they started a family, but were longing for the loft they left behind in Downtown Crossing. Determined to take their time in transitioning to the city, they looked at about 30 prospects before circling back to this one, which happened to be the first house they had seen.
