Business Description
Kate Johns, AIA, is an architectural firm specializing in new traditional architecture and historic preservation. Established in 1986 in the Hudson Valley Region of New York State, we concentrate on classic country house architecture, whether formal or informal. Circulation, the experience of moving through interior spaces and from interior to exterior spaces, as well as light and the framing of views are our primary design concerns. Attention to the rules of proportion and classical detailing are also important as is the building's relationship to the site and to its architectural context.

It is New York fieldstone. We matched the mortar on the old stone house as closely as possible. The color of the mortar is usually determined by the color of the sand, in this case buff colored, used in the mortar mix. We often use a mixture of grey and white cement and sometimes white lime for a softer, more historic mortar. We don't usually use a coloring in the mortar.
