Façade Restoration

Builder: Lowell HaysFor this residence, Shapiro & Company Architects was hired to redo the front facade. Overall, the homeowner was not pleased with the way their house looked. In addition to remedying the owner's dissatisfaction, the achitect's wanted to address some of the poorly designed architectural elements: the out-of-proportion windows and front entryway gave the house a bulky appearance and the two-story entry was 1980's trendy. The house lacked charm and was not very welcoming. This home "face-lift" was a very successful collaboration between client, architect, and builder, resulting in a beautiful home that the owner can truly enjoy and be proud to own.
