myMarvin Architect's Challenge winner: Neoclassical Residence

By Berit Griffin, Marvin Windows November 15, 2012

Located in historic Princeton, New Jersey, this renovation and addition by Catherine M. Knight, AIA of Knight Architects, LLC pairs timeless elegance with classical structure, making the new additions appear as if they were always part of the original of the 1895 Neoclassical home.

This lovely project is another one of our 2012 myMarvin Architect’s Challenge. See more here.

The project included complete historic renovation of the home, as well as two additions. One, a sunroom flanking the right side of the home with two full baths above, and the other, a mudroom, pantry, powder room, and oversized kitchen flanking the left side with a master bath above. A new, detached 3-car garage was also added. The beauty and grace in which the design of the new additions were integrated with the renovation of the existing home make the new structures blend seamlessly with the original Neoclassical home.
The Marvin windows and doors used permitted the blend of the unique and historical existing exterior architectural details with the classic design of the new additions and trim work, both on the interior and exterior. Products used in the Neoclassical Residence included the Ultimate Awning Window, Ultimate Casement Window, the Ultimate Double Hung Window,  the Ultimate Sliding French Door and the Ultimate Swinging French Door.
