Project Info

This Hearthstone Manor Independent Living building was constructed 30 years ago and had aging materials on the exterior and a “dated” appearance that no longer fit into the community architecture.  The new design included several key elements that all combine to make a much more pleasing appearance while also improving and replacing existing materials.  These items include:

  • Removed old exterior stucco and replaced with new, insulated exterior stucco system with attractive “belt-coursing”
  • Removed old thin-veneer brick and replaced it with new thin-veneer brick
  • Created New roof “gable” elements in key locations to compliment the surrounding, similar architecture.
  • Re-purposed an existing, dated tower element to now be a clock tower with a new gabled roof.  Veneer stone was also added as an accent element.
  • Replaced all the existing window
  • Replaced the roof shingles
  • Raised the drive-under canopy, which was very low.
