Sympathetic Additions to Historic and Existing Buildings

Wednesday, October 01, 2014, 1:45pmBuildings are not frozen in time. Some of our most iconic American buildings (think Mt. Vernon, the White House) are vastly different today than when originally built. Additions are not automatically bad, if they follow certain rules and principles. These principles are found in the Secretary of Interiors Standards for Rehabilitation. Learn from seeing scores of successful examples of sympathetic additions from around the US, that good additions can complement an historic building, and give it renewed vitality. Learning Objectives: 1. Learn how to recognize historic architectural styles, features, and more importantly, how to “read” architectural intent in older buildings. 2. Recognize at least four ways to add onto historic buildings 3. Understand the keys to success to adding on sympathetically, and avoiding “remuddling”. 4. Learn how to work within the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation to maximize success with Historic District Commissions or State Historic Preservation Office review of projects submitted for Preservation Tax Credits Outline: 1. What are “sympathetic additions”? And what they’re definitely NOT. Activity: polling the audience about whether any of a dozen projects shown are sympathetic. 2. The regulatory and legislative framework for historic structures and districts. 3. Who is the arbiter of what is and isn’t “sympathetic”? Defining compatibility, dealing with subjective opinion. 4. Additions to historic buildings in the public sector. 5. Four primary ways to add onto historic buildings 6. Compatibility vs Differentiation: the heart of the matter. Where does your SHPO or Landmarks Commission fall on the pendulum? 7. Additions, rehabilitation, and new construction in Historic Districts. 8. The very same principles apply to residential, whether historic or not. Preventing “remuddlings”. Activity: studying a remuddling, and steps one might have taken to prevent it. 9. Resources for further study. 10. Summary and conclusion. CM Criteria: In Denver alone, there are 51 registered Historic Districts. Administration of those districts falls to the Dept. of Planning and Community Development. Specialized architectural and historical training, such as this seminar, are key to helping planners make difficult judgement calls regarding proposed rehabilitation and additions to historic buildings. The two presenters bring decades of practical and theoretical experience to the table. Presenter Nan Anderson, FAIA, is founder of Anderson Hallas Architects, which over 27 years has done civic and public preservation work for the National Park Service, General Services Administration, Dept. of Defense, the State of Colorado, and the City and County of Denver. She currently serves as 2014 President of AIA Denver, and on the Colorado Capitol Building Advisory Committee. Co-presenter Doug Walter is a Senior Architect with Godden/Sudik Architects, where he heads up the remodeling division. Prior to that, he spent 6 years as an Historic Architect and Project Manager for the National Park Service, and 30 years as head of his own firm, which garnered awards for Best Sympathetic Addition from Historic Denver (2005-2007) and the National Trust for Historic Preservation (1995, 1996). He was recently appointed to the Denver Landmark Preservation Commission. In the allotted time, allowing for questions during the talk, the attendees will be exposed to a thorough examination of the topic, given four options to add onto a building, understand how dozens of architects have successfully balanced the competing demands of compatibility and differentiation, and learn how to work better with historic district commissions and State Historic Preservation Officers, as well as how to better present this topic to the public.
