On the main street heading into Maplewood Village sat a home that was completely out of scale and did not exhibit the grandeur of the other homes surrounding it.  When the home became available, our client seized the opportunity to create a home that is more in scale and character with the neighborhood. By creating a home with period details and traditional materials, this new home will dovetail seamlessly into the the rhythm of the street while providing all the modern conveniences today's busy life demands. 

Clawson Architects was pleased to work in collaboration with the owners to create a new home design that takes into account the context, period and scale of the adjacent homes without being a "replica".  It recalls details from the English Arts and Crafts style.  The stucco finish on the exterior is consistent with the stucco finish on one of the adjacent homes as well as others on the block.
