308 Mulberry by Robert M. Gurney Architect:

“The tiny city of Lewes, Delaware, found 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 currently being the internet site of the earliest European settlement in Delaware. Lewes is composed largely of late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century building stock. The dominant developing type is timber and the prevalent development variety is balloon framing. The starting up point for this task is 1 this kind of little home positioned at 308 Mulberry Street, initially constructed in the early nineteenth-century in the heart of the historical district.

The present proprietor bought the historical property in bad problem, with the intention of renovating the present construction and incorporating a considerable extension and swimming pool. In the redesign, the exterior of the authentic framework is meticulously restored. A shed-roofed screened porch, storage room, and poorly proportioned living space added to the back of the house in the early twentieth-century have been eliminated.

The requested spatial needs have been considerable and necessitated much more than doubling the footprint of the unique building. The style approach was to enable the historical, 2-story residence to remain prominent in the all round composition. The requisite space would be accommodated in the authentic property and 4 further structures that would engage the historical home in a minimally invasive vogue. The additions are conceived as one-story pavilions organized close to a new swimming pool and huge Deodor Cedar tree, positioned at the rear of the residence.

Whilst the exterior of the unique house is restored with historically correct detailing, the new pavilions are crisply in depth. Cedar shingled walls and roofs match the historical home but without having 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 aspects, finishing the composition.

The unique residence now consists of the principal entry and 4 bedrooms. The interiors are decidedly modern 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 present day palette of elements and components. In juxtaposition to the largely white interiors of the original residence, the interior of the new residing pavilion is rich with a range material, which includes mahogany walls and ceilings, basalt flooring, white marble countertops and fireplace surround and stainless steel cabinetry. Walls of glass and a extended skylight at the ridge allow light to flood the pavilion. Further pavilions contain a bathroom, an workout space and a screened porch. The screened porch, with Douglas-Fir walls and ceilings, is positioned at the end of the swimming pool and consists of a fireplace allowing the room to be utilised late into the fall.

This task is intended to embrace a small, historical property, to restore it and enable it to contribute to the fabric of historical Lewes for numerous years to come. The venture also attempts to offer generously proportioned, present day, light filled spaces that co-exist comfortably within the historical material.”
