308 Mulberry by Robert M. Gurney Architect:

“The modest city of Lewes, Delaware, located on the eastern side of Sussex County faces northeast into the mouth of the Delaware Bay. Lewes is popularly identified as an eighteenth-century coastal town commemorated for being the website of the earliest European settlement in Delaware. Lewes is composed mainly of late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century building stock. The dominant constructing kind is timber and the prevalent building kind is balloon framing. The beginning point for this project is one particular such modest home positioned at 308 Mulberry Street, originally constructed in the early nineteenth-century in the heart of the historical district.

The existing owner bought the historical home in poor condition, with the intention of renovating the current structure and adding a substantial extension and swimming pool. In the redesign, the exterior of the original structure is meticulously restored. A shed-roofed screened porch, storage room, and poorly proportioned living space added to the back of the property in the early twentieth-century have been removed.

The requested spatial specifications have been substantial and necessitated more than doubling the footprint of the original building. The design and style strategy was to let the historical, 2-story home to remain prominent in the all round composition. The requisite space would be accommodated in the original home and 4 further structures that would engage the historical residence in a minimally invasive fashion. The additions are conceived as one particular-story pavilions organized about a new swimming pool and huge Deodor Cedar tree, situated at the rear of the property.

While the exterior of the original property is restored with historically correct detailing, the new pavilions are crisply detailed. Cedar shingled walls and roofs match the historical residence but with no overhangs and trim. Big expanses of glass set in black steel frames punctuate the cedar walls. Tall red brick chimneys and landscape walls add vertical and horizontal components, completing the composition.

The original residence now includes the main entry and 4 bedrooms. The interiors are decidedly modern day with white walls void of trim, casings, moldings and baseboard that engage white ash flooring. An open, floating staircase, glass walls, aluminum and stainless steel contribute to the modern day palette of components and components. In juxtaposition to the mainly white interiors of the original house, the interior of the new living pavilion is wealthy with a selection material, which includes mahogany walls and ceilings, basalt flooring, white marble countertops and fireplace surround and stainless steel cabinetry. Walls of glass and a long skylight at the ridge permit light to flood the pavilion. Added pavilions include a bathroom, an exercise area and a screened porch. The screened porch, with Douglas-Fir walls and ceilings, is positioned at the finish of the swimming pool and consists of a fireplace permitting the space to be employed late into the fall.

This project is intended to embrace a tiny, historical home, to restore it and allow it to contribute to the fabric of historical Lewes for numerous years to come. The project also attempts to provide generously proportioned, modern day, light filled spaces that co-exist comfortably inside the historical fabric.”
