Neo Victorian

This project began as one large lot, which was split into two separate lots.  The proposed configuration was designed to continue the development pattern of the neighborhood. The houses are a modern take on the Victorians that are ubiquitous in the area. Many of the homes that were built at the turn of the century were designed in pairs and / or triplets. The project further echoes the proportions and layout of historic Victorians without mimicking them. Elements include a 2nd floor entry and entry stair, bay window, and false front (present in many Italianate homes). The house is punctuated with gardens and open space, and was designed to preserve a large, existing Oak.
