Studio III architects’ Hero Wednesday: NEW vs. OLD!

Controversy over NEW vs. OLD!

You love your old sneakers….so you save em and get new ones….or Huck the stinky old ones, or??

 

Ok how about your car, or phone?!  Old vs. New?

 

Maybe it’s more of a cultural question.  Sure some things we love new and others we love because they’re old.  From there it can be simplified to individual preference.  Let’s face it, some like to go antique collecting and others like to get rid of their junk…it all depends on where you stand.

 

So what about this example of a new home vs an old home?  And where does ones opinion cross the boundaries into others rights?

Lower Hudson Valley Historic Window Replacement

A New York State lower Hudson River Valley historic window & door replacement project (in progress.)
Historically authentic replication of windows for this 1780 stone house involved researching the construction of Dutch and Scottish style masonry openings, which were determined by the limited sizes of glass available in this era.
