As restoration architect for the original head house, DHK (in joint venture with The Stubbins Associates) was responsible for the shell of the building, much of which had to be rebuilt. This included the reconstruction of the long-missing west wing, parts of the crumbling east wing, a brand new concourse, new ticket, waiting, and platform areas, plus five stories of office space in both wings. The project also included realignment of the railroad tracks for more efficient service and a new underground connection to the adjacent subway station that was also restored by the joint venture under a separate contract.

When rededicated, the MBTA’s South Station received accolades for being “a truly public space,” and today, nearly 120,000 in commuter rail passengers alone pass through this grand space each day.
