SHINGLE-STYLE RENOVATION, Larchmont, NY
F/S Architects has transformed the exterior and the interior of this existing house into a Shingle Style house. The original house, built in the 1960s, lacked the period detailing of many of the other historic houses in this waterfront neighborhood.
The renovated facades and new additions create cross gables on the roof which increase the appearance of the roof slope's steepness. Additional detail was added with the replacement of all the trim and mouldings, along with the creation of an integral gutter system in the cornice. The windows have been replaced and a new porch added at the front door. Natural cedar shingles installed on the exterior walls and roof will be allowed to weather to a natural soft grey.
The interior of the house has also been renovated with new period mouldings including a panelled Entry Hall and a sycamore panelled Den. We've added a new Master Bath and also completed the interior design.
