Examples of House Extensions in Historical buildings
Builders frequently choose glass, visible, and reflection treatments when extending an old ancient landmark. When working with a historic building, some pick a moderate and delicate style, while another selects a vibrant and expressive style to express their present personality.
Here are some examples:
The Canadian Museum of Nature
The installation of a glass structure on the entryway gave the structure a modern touch, substituting the original tower that was dismantled in 1915 because of physical difficulties. This unique alteration brought the structure into the modern era while preserving its ancient significance.
A 1920s former Factory now office in Tallinn
The building was completely covered in glass to preserve its structure.
A Music School in Louviers
The Music School was once a convent; then, it became a prison before a decision was made to convert it into a music school. A modern expansion was built to house the central symphony auditorium to suit a contemporary and practical program. This primary rectangular container mirrors its environment throughout the afternoon, particularly the running rivers below and the old building. Still, at night, it glows and represents a symbol of fresh starts.
The Hearst Tower
This list would be incomplete if it didn't have The Hearst Tower. The building was initially built in the late twenties. The glass construction conserved the old property's ancient exterior while extending upwards via a gemstone metal framework and glass.
