A Historic Georgian Meets Contemporary Tastes

The historic rear facade was preserved in an architecturally sensitive addition commissioned by previous owners. The skylit gallery casts plenty of sunlight into an otherwise deep space.

A family room addition is connected by a skylit gallery. “The design draws natural light into an otherwise deep floor plan,” says architect Jay Hugo of 3north, who enlarged the original house for previous owners. “The gallery connects to side entrances, linking the interior with the breezeways and garden paths,” adds Jamieson.

In the end, the historic architecture endures, allowing contemporary touches to show through but not compete. “We unified the color palette and introduced murals, high-gloss paint, and glazed wallpaper to give a sense of warmth,” Jamieson explains. “These subtle techniques help the historic architectural details shine in a new light.”
