THE GIBSON HOUSE
INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR RENOVATIONS + REHABILITATION
PROJECT IN PROGRESS
COMPLETION DATE: TBD
CONSTRUCTION VALUE: TBD
Settembrino Architects was hired to renovate and rehabilitate the Gibson House in Evesham, New Jersey. The existing building appears to be two different styles of architecture. Settembrino Architects recommends marrying the architectural language of the front and rear of the building by making embellishments to the entire facade to fit within Federal –Style architecture. Existing windows, doors, roofing, decorative trim would remain. The awnings at the entry ways and rear porch would be removed.
The exterior materials would be modified to consist of a brick veneer base with horizontal siding in lieu of stucco. The trim work at the front would be embellished by adding dentils to be more consistent with the sides and rear of the building. Black shutters would be added to the windows where appropriate. The front awning would be replaced by a covered porch in a style that matches the rest of the architecture.
The existing triangular pediments at the sides of the building would be removed and replaced with a rectangular panel topped by a half-round window pediment to elongate the appearance of the windows and doors at the sides and rear of the building. These portions of the building would be further elongated by adding Pilasters between the windows and doors. Black shutters would be added to the windows and doors where appropriate. The awning over the rear porch would be replaced by a pergola. The existing white railings would be embellished with black aluminum railings to look like wrought-iron.
