Featured Project – Historic Renovation on Main Street in Moorestown, NJ
The homeowners wanted to create a warm and welcoming home for their corporate office.
This project involved the complete interior historical rehabilitation of a Greek Revival Italianate wood frame house built in 1858 and located in Moorestown, New Jersey. Our client wanted their business headquarters to not only be a functional office space, but also a warm and welcoming home to all those that work in or enter the building. The goal was to impeccably and accurately restore the historic home, that had seen better days, to its original grandeur while creating a functional work space for their corporate headquarters.
Since the building had undergone commercial remodels in the past, two drop ceilings and fake walls covered the original plaster walls and ceilings while segmented floorplans and layers of flooring hid the original layout. The scope began with a highly selective demolition, layer by layer, as clues were uncovered and documented of the home’s original features.
A COMPLETE RENOVATION FROM TOP TO BOTTOM
The entire interior of the home was renovated which involved sixteen rooms including a Kitchen and three Bathrooms, a three-story staircase with an octagonal oculus, front and rear entry foyers, custom woodwork and plaster, and a third floor with an open floor plan, and a rear entry ramp entering to a two-story foyer. All new HVAC, Electrical, Plumbing, and Wiring for technology was done to provide modern amenities.
Architectural details, custom period trim and moldings, tile, and hardwood floors integrate the offices and conference rooms while preserving the feel of a grand period home.
