Restoration, Renovation & Addition
- Award Winning -
2020 AIA CT Alice Washburn Award of Excellence
2018 Design Award, CT Trust for Historic Preservation
The recipient of two prestigious architecture awards, our firm's designs completely revamped this Victorian-style cottage, originally constructed in the 1840s. By the early 2000s, the property was abandoned, overgrown, and deteriorating.
The new owner commissioned us to restore the Victorian street façade and roof using historically appropriate materials, detailing, and colors. We also created a two-story expansion to provide a transition between a 1920s addition and the historic house, and added dynamic, full-height metal windows along the back wall to allow for views of the beautiful patio and backyard landscaping.
We also transformed the dilapidated flat-roofed garage into a Victorian Carriage House with historically-inspired roof-scape, siding, and detailing.
