Year of Completion: current project.


This 1832 mansion is one of the finest surviving examples of early Greek Revival domestic architecture in the city of Portland.  In 1914, the home was altered by Architect John Calvin Stevens and used as offices and art studios by the Portland School of Art. In 2007, this historically significant home was reacquired by the Portland Museum of Art. The Museum has retained Mills Whitaker Architects to assist them with its restoration and integration into the adjacent museum campus facility. The campus integration project includes relating this Greek Revival home to it three elegant neighbors: the Federal Style 1801 McLellan House; the 1911 L.D.M. Sweat Galleries (John Calvin Stevens, Architect) and the 1980 Charles Shipman Payson Building (Henry Cobb of I.M. Pei & Partners). The project will address restoration issues in the Clapp House while building an interstitial link that will serve to strengthen the organizational relationships of the other three buildings.
