The 308 Mulberry residence is a late nineteenth-century historic house, located in the small town of Lewes, Delaware. The picturesque view of it was shadowed by the normal deteriorations that occur over time. The house required an upgrade and the exterior needed to be restored to its original condition. Robert M. Gurney, the architect responsible with the project, talks about the general context: “Lewes is composed primarily of late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century building stock. The dominant building type is timber and the prevalent construction type is balloon framing. The starting point for this project is one such small house located at 308 Mulberry Street, originally constructed in the early nineteenth-century in the heart of the historical district.”

The upgrade implied also a series of new additions. To be more specific, four new structures had to engage wonderfully with the existent historical home. The client also requested a modern swimming pool and a lounge area. Despite its historic exterior, the interior looks neat, modern and crisp. The additional pavilions, built around the swimming pool, are envisioned as relaxations spots (one even contains a fireplace allowing the space to be used late into the fall).

An example of a huge success is Heneghan Peng Architects’ Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland. Using the large difference in level across the site, the architects created two folds in the landscape. Bold, but not conflicting with the rather bleak natural environment, these folds draw all the man-made areas together and create one fitting man-made break in the natural landscape. In the words of the architects themselves, There is no longer a building and a landscape, but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic

These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
