Architect: Steven Baczek
Firm: Steven Baczek Architect
Location: Reading, MA
Project Type: Replace and Remodel
This project was a renovation of a 150 year-old New England-style Cape home. The restrictive parameters of being located in one of New England's strictest "Historic Districts" drove the design to align itself with a very traditional style. Because of the historic requirements, bringing the home’s windows up to date in function, performance, and aesthetics, while still meeting the guarded approval of the Historic Review Board, was a challenge. Marvin's broad spectrum of available window types and sizes enabled a design solution that met both the family hopes for a liveable, traditional home and the demands of the Historic Review Board.
