This past year, E. Allen Reeves, Inc. was privileged to build a number of new partnerships, in addition to some beautiful buildings. Our Instagram “Best Nine” images reflect the diversity of work we’ve completed recently – and, in one case, not so recently. Here’s some brief background on these images, from the top left:
St. Thomas Whitemarsh Episcopal Church: This photo of the new chapel at St. Thomas Whitemarsh Episcopal Church really highlights the quality execution of the carpentry in the space. The windows overlook the church’s extensive wooded grounds, contributing to the calming atmosphere of the space.
Peddie School: Peddie School appears on the list in both its finished and in-progress states. The in-progress photo shows the tight conditions of the site, working right in the heart of campus. In the finished photo, details like the copper downspout & flashing and slate roof tiles are clearly visible.
Friends Central School – Light Lab: Converting the original historic carriage house into a modern makerspace required an almost complete interior demolition, as captured in this photo. Nevertheless, effort was made to preserve existing beams and other historic elements where possible.
Stone Hill Church of Princeton: This throwback post to a project completed in 2014 shows the new finished entrance lobby of the LEED Certified church, which also includes an informal café, welcome desk, and other amenities.
Private Residence – “Priory Court:” Another throwback, this time to 2015, the library of Priory Court is a perfect blend of modern and historic. The Gothic revival residence was carefully restored while incorporating a modern aesthetic in many of its finishes, most notably the light fixtures as shown here.
Private Residence – Princeton: Like Priory Court, this project was also the thorough renovation of a historic Princeton-area residence that sought to reconcile historic fabric with modern living habits. In this case, the result includes exposed original brick & structural elements, a clever spiral staircase with rotating panels, and a basement converted into to a state-of-the-art home entertainment complex.
Monroe Village: A Springpoint Community: From the air, it’s clear just how large the scope is of the expansion at Monroe Village. We are still in the process of building the new 86,000 sq ft. Skilled Nursing facility on the community’s existing campus, and look forward to seeing the finished product in early 2017.
Stonebridge at Montgomery: A Springpoint Community: At this project, our second currently underway with Springpoint Senior Living, a significant portion of the community’s health center and club house are being renovated. The most challenging aspect of the project was installing a large vertical expansion of an existing building.
We look forward to providing more updates on our current and past projects in the coming year. To keep in touch, visit our website for the latest news or follow us on Instagram here.
