2015 Residential Historic Renovation

The existing house was a two-story American four-square circa 1910 with a covered front porch, long overhanging eaves and a side bay window among other details typical of the four-square style. There is a previous addition on the rear of the house with a small covered porch providing an additional entry, as well as an areaway providing access to the basement from the rear yard. The house sits on two lots with the majority of the house located on the left lot. The scope of the work included a two-story addition on the rear of the existing house and exterior renovation of the existing property. The proposed addition has been modified so that it is weighted almost entirely to the left of the property. To retain the significance of the original house, we located the addition entirely to the rear of the house and stepped back the addition where the two meet. We removed the projecting mudroom entry and incorporated additional glazing into the hyphen to break up the massing and further differentiate the addition from the existing house. By matching the eave height of the existing house we were able to keep the massing of the building and the ridge height subordinate to the existing structure. The design was kept within the historical character of the existing house, and the renovation of the existing exterior with updated with more traditional and historically accurate materials and details.

We removed most of the existing concrete drives and walkways, and replaced them with permeable pavers to reduce the amount of non-habitable impervious surfaces on the lot.
