The Modern Victorian

This Second Empire Victorian, was built with a unique, modern, open floor plan for an active young family. Nestled mid-block on a tree lined street, it was conceived in to reflect the neighboring historical context, and respect the former original home which occupied this site. The challenge was to design a Transitional Victorian home, honoring the past and creating its own future story. A variety of windows, such as lancet arched, basket arched, round, and the twin half round infused whimsy and authenticity as a nod to the period. Dark blue shingles on the Mansard roof, characteristic of Second Empire Victorians, contrast the white exterior, while the quarter wrap around porch pays homage to the former home.
