NEW @FC3ARCHITECT RESIDENCE ON THE BOARDS – From Cape Cod to Center Hall Colonial

The latest designs for this new expanded home consist of a modern spin on a center hall colonial.  We achieve this by expanding the existing cape cod residence on the right side and the rear of the home.  New master bedroom suite and bedrooms are on the new second floor.   The new addition allows us to re-position the stairs to create a center hall.  The front of the home remains traditional with formal living and dining spaces on each side of the hall.  Access to the great room and new kitchen is provided through pocket doors.  The new kitchen will boost a built in breakfast nook and double-island design while the great room boosts a gas-fired fireplace.

NEW @FC3ARCHITECT RESIDENCE ON THE BOARDS – From Plain Saltbox to Mediterranean-Style Residence

The latest designs for this new expanded home consist of a modern spin on a Mediterranean-style county home with spanish tile roof.  We achieve this by expanding the existing two-story home to the left of the existing garage and the the entrance of the existing home.  Updated second floor layouts allow for outdoor living space over the new garage addition. The new front addition boosts a new curved staircase connecting the main level living space with the bedroom spaces above.  A new foyer and dining room is created reusing existing rooms in the house.  The interior will elaborate on the theme by integrating curved archways and stone details.  The front facade was designed with order in mind – arches and columns provide rhythm and elegance for this new home.  The client opted for cast iron railings both inside and outside.

Restoration to a Custom Home – Currently Under Construction (Northern NJ) Designed by @FC3ARCHITECT

FC3 Architecture + Design LLC was brought on board as the design professional to address the damage to this existing home due to plumbing failures.  This large four-bedroom suburban home located in Northern NJ (approximately 5,690 square feet) is in the process of being completely restored — just about every square inch of the home was damaged, repaired, and restored.  This presentation chronicles the “before” and “during construction” photographs.  We hope to upload the photos of the final project in the near future.

New Fitness Center in Newark Empowers Local Youth; Designed by @FC3ARCHITECT

Thanks to the City of Newark‘s Planning department and the support of local city officials, Augusto “Augie” Amador and Al Coutinho and local businesses  this old warehouse restoration project is in the process of being reconstructed.  The decapitated, abandoned building has been restored (as envisioned by the Owner/Manager, the Architect, and the Contractor).  The existing structure was salvaged and reconstructed to maximize its reuse as a new fitness center.  The 10+ square foot facility boosts all the latest equipment and is run by a management team who have more accomplishments (and body building titles) that could ever be listed here.  “….The space will also be an outreach to the local children of our community who need a new place to work out and be mentored by trained seasoned professionals.”   Click here for more information and join them on Facebook.
