Language of the Past

Hutker Architects learns the vocabulary of an antique Colonial for a harmonious new addition to a historical structure.

A wonderful piece of history sits serenely on Lower Mill Pond in Brewster’s historical Factory Village. The Nathaniel Winslow House—also known by locals as the High Brewster Inn—was built in 1738 near the gristmill and famous herring run. A true Colonial design, the structure has a center chimney and center hall flanked by two parlors (now both bedrooms) each with original pine-paneled walls and fireplaces; the original keeping room (now a living/music room) is located along the length of the original house.

When other shelters turn animals away because of old age, aggressive behavior, or because they’re full, animals need to go somewhere else. “We are the somewhere else,” says Marischen.’ Read more…
