Portsmouth Custom House

Portsmouth, NH

Historic Preservation and Improvements

The Custom House is a historically important 163-year-old granite building located in downtown Portsmouth, NH. It is on the National Register of Historic Places and a landmark for the community. A block away from Market Square it was once home to the Custom House and Post Office.

Our client for this property looked to reimagine the disjointed interiors and restore the granite exterior of this historically important building. WINTER HOLBEN gained approval from the Historic District Commission for a complete window replacement and architectural lighting enhancement. Future additional work in the entryway, an updated mechanical system, the addition of an elevator, and the possibility for residential units, was also included in our design plan.
