Deluca’s Market

Boston, Massachusetts

In the heart of Beacon Hill, this post-fire renovation preserves the legacy of the DeLuca Market and the historic fabric of the region. Painstakingly recreated using damaged remains and photographic evidence, the project met the rigorous review standards mandatory in this neighborhood. Although the project did not call for new design, it was exceptionally satisfying for John Priestley to contribute to this historic neighborhood he has known since birth – as an architect, a rare opportunity.
