To achieve the goals for the property, we brought in a softer palette. This really helped calm the harsh nature of the brick. In addition, we kept the property anchored by placing a darker and richer color on the brick and lightening the upper stories. Using a brighter white, we created a light architectural line on the fascia. Finally, we grounded the doors and shutters by unifying them into the deepest color in the palette, which is a rich black. The result is a property that has been brought up to today’s aesthetics while also keeping the property relevant for at least the next decade, which was one of the property owner’s goals.
