recent residential facelift commissions
As you know, we’ve recently started offering homeowners the same virtual facelifts that we’ve been doing for commercial property owners. These virtual facelifts are cost effective visualizations of suggested ideas to help our clients picture what the changes will look like before money is spent on painting and renovations.
The virtual facelift is a rendering that shows what your current home will look like after we incorporate your input on budget, personal likes, and other revisions. We will incorporate your input with our professional experience adding both aesthetic and financial value to your residence.
The images below are part of a residential facelift package that we just recently finished. The unique thing about this facelift is that the apartments are situated next door to each other, so once the renovations to the exterior are complete, the fresh look will greatly enhance the stretch of homes along the block. We’ve added new landscaping along the entry sidewalks and transplanted the larger decorative tree that flanked the entry to a matching corner which adds a little formality to the home by creating the symmetrical pattern. Finishing off the site improvements, new privacy fences were added to the side yard of the corner facing residences and also between the two structures.
For the buildings themselves, we focused on the front of each one, which were originally open porches that seem to have been closed in sometime in the seventies. New stucco covers the existing coquina bands under the windows and the columns have been enhanced and brought up to date with frames inset panels. We also added brackets under the “french country” styled corner unit, to add some needed detail. Square medallions are centered under each window in the new stucco bands to break up the facade and again, add another layer of detail, to what was originally a very blank facade. Finally, as always it’s amazing what new awnings and fresh paint can do for the aesthetics of a building:
