Exciting New Façade

Creative solutions were many, often done in subtle and appropriate ways for the homes period and architectural style. The shed roof works well on the elevated site to promote the small scale cottage look of the home. A charming cottage look was preferred to a showier porch design. Three columns across the front of the porch enhance the asymmetry of the original house façade. A round window added to the foyer wall dresses up the façade with a bit of detail and provide more natural light to the existing foyer. A custom trellis with ball feet and caps gives a sense of closure to the open porch, screens a neighbor at the side and provides architectural detail generally lacking on the home.

The end result is a harmonious and appropriate design solution for the home. The new work looks seamless and natural, as though it was always there. And best of all, it gives the older home a new street presence which it sorely lacked.
