The building's quirky style, faded paint and
ad hoc additions had combined to become an example of the faded glory of Atlantic Avenue.
The building has been cleaned up architecturally. Restored murals and a fresh color scheme that highlights the architectural features animate the new facade. A new copper awning now invites readers to browse the books for sale on the street level.
A utilitarian structure provided a growing Realty firm with minimal space and a modest street presence.
Expanded to two stories and enhanced with architectural details and color, the new building serves as a calling card for the business to the community. The structure is now representative of the upscale real estate the firm handles.
Languishing on a prominent corner, this garden style apartment building had seen better days. Any style the building had was obscured by bad renovations over time.
The three color paint scheme on the exterior breaks up the mass of the building into sections with scale and presence. The new broken pediments further accentuate the massing of the building, while the red fascia band unites the entire structure into a cohesive whole.
Built as a mid-century motor court style motel, little had changed in the ensuing half century. The structure was well maintained, but looking dated.
A fresh color scheme, iconic entry towers, and new metal roofs provide the motel with street presence and a warm, welcoming feeling that is up to date. The remodeled style allows the motel to compete with adjacent casino buildings.
This multi-family building sat unnoticed along a major road. Bland color and a boxy form allowed the building to be ignored.
New forms, colors, and landscaping have been combined to make the building pop. The forms and colors start on the front facade and continue down the drive side, where the entrances have been relocated. The multi-toned color scheme emphasizes the interplay of light and shadow. The remodeled structure has taken its place as a significant part of the streetscape.
