Re: “A contemporary home threatens to tear Oakwood apart

I expanded my home in a protected historic district in New Orleans in 2002 and worked with the Historic District architectural review committee adapting my design as the committee suggested. I was concerned throughout the process, that we were communicating clearly on our joint desires that respected both the district and my property rights. My original design for my expansion was very historicist, as has been done nicely for many years by several Louisianian architects. The HDLC review committee however strongly suggested that the design for this expansion reflect a modern aesthetic and avoid plagarizing historic styles. We agreed on the massing of the design and I adjusted openings and trim details in a way that I felt was a worthwhile exchange. I feel the Cherry/Gordon house in Raleigh is a very sensitive addition to a neighborhood that will continue to be valued into the future. I hope the City of Raleigh sees that it's own process worked well too...Lew Bremenstul
