When Architectural Historians look at examples of the “WPA Moderne” style, images of Hoover Dam, monumental courthouses in California, grand libraries and post offices in the Midwest, and massive Federal Office buildings in Washington DC come to mind. Which makes the Closter Borough Hall all the more special. Since being incorporated in 1904, Closter municipal officials worked out of their homes, the police were housed in part of a railroad signal tower, and fire fighting apparatus were exposed to the weather. Clearly a solution was needed, but the trying financial times, especially during the Great Depression, made the task daunting. Once land “central to the life of the town” became available, and with labor provided by the Works Progress Administration, the new Municipal Building was finally built. The design fulfilled the essential needs of the Borough back in 1938; a home for municipal offices, a place to hold public meetings, and garages for police and fire department vehicles. All necessary departments in a single compact shell; a functional building, but with a touch of style, a tasteful compilation of brick and stucco, with vertical windows and soaring roof mounted flagpoles. Always useful, Borough Hall was modified to suit the times, losing the flagpoles during WWII when the roof was used by the Civil Air Patrol, with volunteers scanning for enemy planes. When the Police and Fire Departments outgrew the building and moved to other quarters, the original bay doors were filled in, and the garages converted to more office space. Even when an addition was added to the rear of Borough Hall, the character of the original structure remained. But through years of public service, the building began to show signs of wear. Rather than abandoning a faithful public servant, the Borough had the foresight to preserve and rehabilitate the building. The care with which the renovations have been undertaken is admirable. In restoring Closter Borough Hall to its glory as the heart of municipal government, it is a source of pride for the entire community, and a shining example of what can be done to acknowledge the past, while serving public needs for the present, and into the future.

2017 marks the 51st year of the National Historic Preservation Act, the most far-reaching preservation legislation ever enacted in the U.S. Signed into law by the President on October 15, 1966, the Act formally recognized historic preservation as an important policy of the United States. The law established a federal framework for preserving the country’s historic and cultural fabric, which included a national preservation program and systems of procedural protection. The Act codified the National Register of Historic Places, required federal agencies to consider the impact of new construction on historic sites, and provided for public comment before a site can be altered. “The Congress finds and declares that: (a.) the spirit and direction of the Nation are founded upon and reflected in its historic heritage; (b.) the historical and cultural foundations of the Nation should be preserved as a living part of our community life and development in order to give a sense of orientation to the American people; …. – – Preamble to the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966

Historic Overview:

 

This is an excellent example of a Greek Revival Italianate wood frame house built in 1858 by John Buzby. The house is located in the heart of the Moorestown Historic District at the intersection of Main Street and Mill Street. The property remained in the Buzby family until 1920.  Since then, it has transitioned to commercial use and was used as a hotel, beauty shop, and real estate office. In 2015, Mark Baiada, founder of BAYADA Home Health Care purchased the property with the intention of restoring it to its original grandeur for the corporate headquarters of his company.  Historic Building Architects, LLC were selected as the Preservation Architects to assist with the design and restoration of the house.  Extensive research was completed reviewing pattern books and architectural details and finishes used for the period.

 

Scope of Work:

 

This is truly a rehabilitation project.  It acknowledges the need to alter and add to the historic property to meet the continuing and changing uses while retaining the property’s historic character.  Although this project was for commercial office use, the owner wanted the architect to meticulously restore and preserve the interior architectural features of the building.  This included the wood floors that were salvaged and reused on the second floor, the wood inlaid details on the first floor, the plaster moldings and cornices, the stair details, including the decorative balustrades, the large wood paneled doors, the wood windows with their inlaid panels below, and the fireplace mantels were all meticulously preserved by skilled, largely local craftsmen.  In addition, the building needed some improvements to allow for public use as an office and to meet building code requirements.  One of the primary features of the rehabilitation is the creation of a new staircase to the third floor.  The new octagonal oculus on the third floor allows light from the cupola above to pour down through the building. This was indeed a detail used in the Italianate revival period although in this instance no historic evidence of an oculus was found, however, it was in keeping with the character of the building style.  Other features included arched openings with decorative Victorian style brackets, new barrier-free restrooms designed in a manner appropriate and finished with Victorian finishes.  New systems and upgrades were also included in the renovation.  Lighting was both practical as well as decorative with electric fixtures in keeping with the Victorian period gas lights.  Great detail and care was taken to use classical Victorian finishes, such as William Morris wallpapers and traditional Victorian tile imported from England to complete the restoration.  In addition, the interior design was meticulously finished to include furniture and details that might have been found in a Victorian house of this period.  This extraordinary care and attention to detail was motivated by the client’s desire to retain the house to its Victorian period of significance.  This has successfully created a very pleasing, warm, and welcoming historic space, and yet at the same time, this building functions as the office headquarters for BAYADA Home Health Care services, an organization with 18,000 staff, 300 offices, in 22 States.

 

Award Nomination:

 

It is a rare experience for a Preservation Architect, to work with a commercial company with a passion for preserving a historic building.  BAYADA Home Health Care services could have created their new headquarters within a commercial modern building, or built a new building.  However, they had the vision and foresight and passion for preservation to select a historic building within the heart of their historic community and to repurpose and revitalize the building for both their benefit and the community benefit.  They have set the highest of standards for raising awareness in preservation for commercial use and demonstrated that a historic building can work equally well for modern office needs.  This vision is in keeping with the values of BAYADA Home Health Care, which are compassion, excellence, and reliability.  They build relationships and they recognize that creating a “home” within a historic house is in keeping with their work as home care providers.  Moreover, they wanted to make sure that the local community was involved both in terms of supporting the local craftsmen, as well as recognizing the important urban revitalization value of relocating to Main Street and having a welcome presence in the heart of the commercial and historic district of Moorestown.

Jerome Leslie Eben, FAIA, Elevated to American Institute of Architects College of Fellows

Jerome Leslie Eben, AIA

New Jersey Architect Recognized with National Distinction

On Thursday April 27, 2017, the New Jersey chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA-NJ) will celebrate the elevation of Jerome Leslie Eben, FAIA, a beloved member, mentor and leader, to the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) prestigious College of Fellows.

 

The fellowship program was developed to honor those architects who have made a significant contribution to architecture and society, and who have achieved a standard of excellence in the profession. The program recognizes architects in several categories, including outstanding service to the profession, service to the community, design, architectural education and career or volunteer excellence beyond the built environment. Election to fellowship not only recognizes the achievements of architects as individuals, but also their significant contribution to the profession and to society at a national level. The 2017 fellows will be honored at an investiture ceremony at the National AIA Conference on Architecture 2017 in Orlando FL.

 

Upon receiving word of his elevation, Eben stated “I have been incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to serve the public in a career that has included the completion of buildings for all types of construction and uses, across the entire country, while at the same time supporting my colleagues through volunteer efforts with the AIA.  I am truly honored that the AIA has recognized me as a Fellow.”

 

In a career now in its fifth decade, Mr. Eben has served in more than forty different leadership positions, always acting tirelessly as an advocate and representative for the profession and the AIA. Soon after becoming a licensed architect, Jerry assumed leadership positions in AIA Newark and Suburban Architects, one of six (6) local sections of the Chapter.  In fact, he has served in every position available, in AIA-NJ and in each he has not only fulfilled his duties, but done more.  When his term as President of the Chapter coincided with the 150th anniversary of the AIA, he inaugurated an original public affairs effort, employing a firm to gain press and deploying 150 architects to visit middle and high schools from which they graduated during the annual National Architecture Week.

 

Jerry’s personal touch and grassroots approach have been the key to his ongoing success.  In 2011 he began a three-year stint on the AIA National Board, serving on various committees with a concentration on advocacy and reaching out to government officials regarding the elimination of urban Brownfields to help “bring back from the brink,” America’s cities.

 

From the time of his move to West Orange, he worked for the rehabilitation of the Edison Battery Building with the goal of enhancing the historic downtown.  Enlisting members of Congress from both sides of the aisle in this cause, he organized symposia to educate local leaders on the potential of these sites.  He has testified on Capitol Hill as an expert witness on the subject. He has spoken at AIA Conferences, teaching his colleagues how to promote beneficial legislation.

 

Jerry’s dedication to community is unrelenting.  He has written frequent opinion pieces in the local press, with the goal of educating the public of the importance of architecture and this commitment as an art, as well as a social necessity.

 

He strongly believes that the promotion of architecture and its profession must start with our children, future architects, clients, and citizens.  For thirty years, he has spoken to 10,000 young adults about making architecture a career choice.  His lectures include building safety ideas, so when you go on vacation and your child counts how many hotel room doors to the nearest fire exit, you know that they have heard this from one of Mr. Eben’s presentations.

 

This year begins Eben’s 45th in the AIA and as he has often stated, “that many of his former employers encouraged his involvement in the organization, and I want to sincerely thank them for the encouragement.  In addition, I want to thank friends and colleagues at the New Jersey Chapter of the American Institute of Architects and the support of my family for allowing me to participate.”

 

Out of a total AIA membership now surpassing 90,000, there are just three per cent distinguished with the honor of fellowship. The elevation to fellowship is conferred on architects with at least 10 years of membership in the AIA who have promoted the aesthetic, scientific, and practical efficiency of the profession; advanced the science and art of planning and building by advancing the standards of architectural education, training and practice; coordinated the building industry and the profession of architecture through leadership in the AIA and other related professional organizations; advanced the living standards of people through an improved environment; or made the profession of ever-increasing service to society.

 

To join the celebration at the AIA NJ Fellows Reception, find us at Copper Canyon Grill, 9101 International Dr #1220, Orlando FL at 6PM on April 27, 2017. Festivities hosted by President Elect, Verity Frizzell, AIA.

Architecture Week 2017 applauds great architecture! Porcelanosa – Exterior Facade Restoration, by CTS Group, wins an AIA NJ Honor Award in the historic preservation category.

red_eaglePORCELANOSA – EXTERIOR FACADE RESTORATION
CTS Group Porcelanosa.jpg
HISTORICAL NARRATIVE
202 Fifth Avenue which is located in New York City’s Madison Square North Historic District is a 6-story building constructed in 1918 as offices for the Thomas Cusack Company. Designed by architects Buchman & Kahn with Zimmerman, Saxe and Zimmerman the steel and reinforced concrete structure was faced with polychrome, glazed terra cotta which terminated in a large over-hanging cornice and a stone storefront with a stone cornice The highly visible 25th Street, south façade was originally treated as a promotional billboard, brightly lit after dark and covered with the firm’s name and services between windows and in a roof top sign.
porcelanosa2
Major Building alterations commenced in the early 1940’s and continued for decades for new occupants and owners. These included removing window and closing all window opening son the south façade’s east and west bays and removing the extensive building-mounted signage. Decorative terra cotta spandrels were covered with stucco panels. Deteriorated terra cotta cornice brackets were removed and that cornice section was covered with stucco over wire lath. Finally the parapet was simplified and covered with stucco and the 1st floor storefront was completely replaced in 1991. The terra cotta
cornice and clad ding was adversely affected by limited maintenance. There was some response to the deterioration but virtually all was inappropriate. Remedial work included poor patching and the use of problematic and non-matching coatings over terra cotta facing, cornice and parapet elements.
porcelanosa3
When Porcelanosa USA–a major European building tile and products manufacturer–acquired the property in 2012 it had twin goals. These were to create 21st century offices and showrooms for its American operations and to provide a 1st class exterior restoration which returned the façade to their original appearance and conditions to the greatest extent possible. The CTS Group was retained by Porcelanosa USA to prepare design and construction documents for the exterior restoration.
porcelanosa4
FAÇADE RESTORATION
The Project included restoration of the existing polychrome terra cotta and stone façade elements. Although construction documents were generated based on extensive building surveys these were all from the ground. Once scaffolds were erected all facades were re-surveyed to confirm and add to the base scope of work. All terra cotta was cleaned which included the removal of numerous compound which required many mockups to achieve the correct effect. Removal of stucco cornice cladding revealed severely compromised structure all of which was replaced with new stainless steel structure and anchors. New terra cotta cornice features were fabricated based on existing remaining elements including some uncovered during the work. Openings on the south façade east and west bays which had altered and closed were re-opened. New terra cotta trim was fabricated for these openings as well as for all 6th floor lintels which had been damaged due to deteriorating steel supporting structure. Six carefully considered colors were chosen for the new terra cotta to match the dozen or so colors, and sheen, of the original.
Hundreds of ferrous anchors, which had been left in place from the building-mounted signage, were removed and patched with restoration mortar. Hundreds of additional areas of cracked and damaged terra cotta were patched as well. All patched terra cotta was coated with new glazing to match the colors and sheen of the original terra cotta.

Architecture Week 2017 applauds great architecture! NJ Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health, by Ballinger, wins an AIA NJ Honor Award in the built project category.

red_eagleNJ INSTITUTE FOR FOOD, NUTRITION + HEALTH
Ballinger NJ Institute for food nutrition and health
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The New Jersey Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health (IFNH) underscores the
commitment of Rutgers University to new transformational initiatives across the many disciplines impacting food, nutrition, and health. The IFNH draws upon the strengths of the entire university as it physically co-locates and strategically aligns diverse disciplines to address society’s pressing challenges in cardio-inflammatory disease, cancer and obesity.
NJInstitute1
This interdisciplinary research building is the centerpiece of the Institute. The highly sustainable facility embodies the concepts of movement, activity, and wellness that are central to the Institute’s mission, while engaging local communities through its outreach focus to promote healthy lifestyles. The building features a student health clinic, a human performance lab, a nutrition research clinic, a healthy eating courtyard and a preschool dedicated to educating parents and children on diet and nutrition. The remaining spaces house wet and dry labs, faculty and administrative offices and outreach meeting spaces.
NJInstitute3
The sloping site for IFNH is located at the edge of the agricultural campus’ academic core overlooking bucolic research fields and barns to the south. Situated on a main campus pathway between the academic core to the northwest and residential precinct to the southeast, the building is located to maximize its outreach mission. The immediate adjacency to the Campus’s Food Science Building enables direct collaboration between the University and Institute.
NJInstitute4
The site presents a “building in the round” challenge demanding unique responses to each of it’s four orientations including a new campus amphitheater and quad, vehicular court, pre-school play yard and a sloping meadow. The Institute coalesces beneath an iconic shading “parasol” which organizes the formally articulated programmatic elements and expresses the Institute’s commitment to sustainability. The terra-cotta rain screen clad “bar” positioned on the north side of the granite faced piano-nobile, consolidates the more private and cellular room functions, terminates the axis of the new campus quad and responds to the brick campus context. The bar also serves as the backdrop to the south facing, naturally lit, open research environment with panoramic views of the campus. An abundance of openness and transparency unites all of these functions into a convergent environment to reinforce the collaborative mission of the Institute.
NJInstitute5
Organizing this open environment is a centrally positioned “hearth” that is the symbolic and functional nutrition source for the building. It is clad in sustainably sourced wood, sponsors an iconic green wall and formally integrates all three floors of the Institute’s diverse program with an adjacent open stair.

Architecture Week 2017 applauds great architecture! The Biotrial North America Headquarters, by Francis Cauffman, wins an AIA NJ Merit Award in the built open project category.

red_eaglebiotrial / north american headquarters / newark, nj
Francis Cauffman Biotrial.jpg
A contract research organization based in France with offices in Paris, London and Montreal, strategically sought an architecture firm to design a North American Headquarters. Setting a precedent for future city development, Francis Cauffman was engaged for the first phase of the research organization’s master plan located in the University Heights Science Park of Newark, NJ. Although 70,000 SF is considered modest, smaller and relatively narrow floor plates were opted for. This resulted in a five-story building that conveyed significant impact in its architectural design.
biotrial1
transparentsolid / privatepublic / openclosed
The basic concept of the building is formed by two interlocking planes: one plane
made primarily of solid black brick with matching mortar and the other made of
a fritted curtain wall. Brick paneling on the east exterior surrounds the support
spaces, circulation areas and core of the building. The fritted curtain wall allows
sunlight into the lobby, office, and short/medium stay areas. Varying levels of
daylight create different patterns, resulting in an exterior that is not only visually
interesting, but also provides a layer of privacy. A ribbon of metal panels ties the
two planes together and represents the fluid nature of chemistry and science. This metal ribbon begins on the private side of the building by forming the canopy, moves through the building as the lobby ceiling, emerges on the public side as a frame for the vestibule and completes itself as the canopy for services.

Architecture Week 2017 applauds great architecture! The Pirbright Institute for Animal Health, by HDR, wins an AIA NJ Merit Award in the built open project category.

red_eaglePIRBRIGHT INSTITUTE, Surrey, England
HDR Aminal Health.jpg
A LABORATORY FOR LIVING
pirbright1
In the countryside of Sussex, England, a new containment facility for the Pirbright Institute will revolutionize the way people work with viral diseases effecting animal and human health. The design ushers in a new paradigm for Category 4 bio-containment (similar to USBSL-3 enhanced) in which researchers work in labs and offices with large windows and expansive views, gather in an open light-filled atrium, and eat in the cafeteria—all within the containment boundary. A radical departure from traditional bunker-like containment facilities, this new model is safer, enhances research productivity, and is exponentially more comfortable and pleasant for researchers and staff. Arguably the most spectacular space in the new facility—and unheard of in a containment facility–is the glass three-story atrium topped by a glass oculus with views to the sky. On the ground floor, the atrium is not within the containment barrier, but visitors have views to containment spaces. Shared, unassigned write-up space is located on the first floor, within the containment barrier, and offers views through the atrium to other floors.
pirbright2
The new facility was sited to create an entirely new entrance and entrance sequence to the Institute’s campus, and to take advantage of the expansive views to a forested ravine to the south. Further, the exterior materials were selected for their strong visual impact to reinforce the revolutionary nature of this facility—and in particular, to move away from conventional, sterile containment environments. The use of wood timber paneling, multi-colored window casings, transparent glass panels, and a carefully detailed metal brise-soleil were all selected to create a place that enhances researchers’ lives, and helps to brand the Pirbright Insitute as a new, vibrant place to work.
