Of the thirteen original houses in Greenwich's Field Point Park, only five remain relatively intact. Our client was the new owner of one of these, "Easterly", an Italian Renaissance Revival house built in the first years of the Twentieth Century. We were asked to restore the house, while also adding the kinds of informal living spaces, internal garages, service elements, etc. that were not part of the original structure.
The house as originally constructed carried strong traces of the Victorian era, having been built during the first decade of the Twentieth Century when academic revival styles were just beginning to take hold as a replacement for the Queen Anne. These Victorian-era influences are visible at the interior, especially in the original principal rooms of the main floor.
In newly-constructed spaces such as the Family Room, we took a much more restrained and rusticated view toward the Italian Renaissance Revival. This permits the house to provide a large amount of spatial variety while perhaps enhancing the correspondence between its exterior design and the rooms within.
