Façade Restoration

For this residence, Shapiro & Company Architects was hired to redo the front façade. Overall, the homeowner was not pleased with the way their house looked. In addition to remedying the owner's dissatisfaction, the architect 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 1980s trendy. The house lacked charm and was not very welcoming. This home "face-lift" was a very successful collaboration between the client, architect, and builder, resulting in a beautiful home that the owner can truly enjoy and be proud to own.

Builder: Lowell Hays
