• A concept sketch for a “face lift” to an austere 10,000 square foot Long Island county house designed by Delano and Aldrich  in 1925  •  The client had a love of early English architecture, so we combined references from H. T. Lindeberg and Sir Edwin Lutyens. Both architects — who believed architecture should exhibit a bit of drama — exaggerated dominant features such as tall chimneys, many-mullioned windows, and deep gables  •  The proposed transformation incorporates  rough natural materials  such as white oak clapboard gables, lime-washed stucco walls, all under a graduated slate roof  •  Added elements include covered entry, walled motor court, and service area separated by line of pleached trees  •
