This commercial building has a long history within its rural neighborhood. The new Owners desired to maintain a sense of history at the site by preserving as many architectural elements and features of the original building as possible. The program called for the interior remodeling of an existing two-story building, with additions, to create a new retail establishment featuring a fine art gallery and a framing shop. A preserved exterior trellis and shade canopy structure now help identify the building’s entrance while enclosing the new sculpture garden and courtyard area. In keeping with a design that provides simple and clean backdrops for the display of art, the gallery interiors are basic and uncluttered.
