Modern Home Renovation

Work is progressing on significant improvements to this 1960s modern home. In addition to being entirely refurbished, an upper level has been added which will provide the sleeping spaces with private outdoor terraces and amazing views of the surrounding wooded landscape. Look for more updates as the project nears completion.

"Modern American Housing," featuring CULVER HOUSE

Just released from Princeton Architectural Press & Editor Peggy Tully, Modern American Housing: High-Rise, Reuse, Infill  with a chapter highlighting DDA's Culver House!

 

Description from the publisher: " Modern American Housing brings together the most enlightened thinkers from the worlds of architecture, social practice, and real estate development to present the latest developments in the design and construction of new housing stock in re urbanizing cities throughout the United States. New housing is grouped into three sections, housing towers, reused historical structures, and urban infill, and documented with photographs, pre-construction renderings, floor plans, and maps indicating location in urban settings. An accompanying essay and a discussion with urban planners, architects, and policy-makers round out this fresh look at the past and future of the American house."
