Jury comments: Beautifully done with clarity and simplicity, the addition defers to the historic mansion without becoming invisible. Great care and attention to detail at all scales characterize the restoration and new construction. Without aping the historic, the contemporary appears as if it has always been there, creating one cohesive building.
