Before and After Gallery

Princeton Antiques Before

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.

Prudential Before

A utilitarian structure provided a growing Realty firm with minimal space and a modest street presence.

Prudential After

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.

N. Washington Ave. Before

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.

Econolodge on Morris and Pacific Ave. Before

Attempts to update this 1950's motel with applied awnings did not bring the style up to the level of the surrounding casino properties. The building looked clean, but tired and low end.

Shaped, arched accent walls, a new metal mansard roof and a new color scheme raised the profile of the building and allowed it to blend with the neighboring Tropicana Casino, while providing a competitive presence on the busy corner.
