walnut house update – jhpc

Link to original post.

walnut house: modern sustainable home approved for jacksonville’s springfield historic district.

this is an awesome step forward for architecture in jacksonville, florida and provides a primer (i’m sure there are others….many others) for other historic districts in the united states.  modern/contemporary architecture should not be seen as something that will detract from the historical nature of a neighborhood, but rather something that will ADD TO the historical nature by being in contrast to historic homes/buildings.

check out Content Design Group’s website for more information and a reaction from the homeowners upon hearing that their home was approved for construction.
