We are in charge of both the architecture and the landscape architecture necessary to restore this colonial era home. The original house was built at the beginning of the eighteenth century. Since then, it has undergone several transformations, including a renovation in the high Georgian fashion done toward the end of eighteenth century. The project is in its early stages. We are currently analyzing the house and the site with the help of a team of prestigious historians and archaeologists. Once the site is thoroughly investigated, we will use our expertise with colonial and early American architecture to design historically appropriate features for the house and the gardens.

Although we are still measuring and doing research on the original eighteenth-century fabric of the house, we have already started playing with alternative designs. This is one of them.
