Chadsworth Project Showcase with James Schettino Architects

WHO CHOOSES CHADSWORTH COLUMNS FOR THEIR OWN HOME?

Chadsworth’s Project Showcase
With James Schettino Architects

 

Located in New Cannan, Connecticut, the Farley Residence was a major renovation project where the original two-story brick home transformed into an opulent private dwelling.  At first glance, one might be skeptical that this is, in fact, the same home.  There were several bold architectural upgrades that contributed to this residential facelift, such as:  new roofing, wrap-around porches on both the first & second levels, extensive landscaping enhancements, and – of course – the addition of stately exterior columns.

 

Chadsworth was pleased to contribute to the high demand for top-of-the-line architectural appeal by providing our award-winning PolyStone® composite columns for both the front entryway and the first level porch.  Overall, (12) of Our PolyStone® columns, in different sizes, were utilized.  This project features (8) – 20″ x 16′ composite columns with Roman Ionic capitals and Ionic (Attic) base moldings / plinths,  as well as (4) – 12″ x 8′ composite columns also with Roman Ionic capitals and Ionic (Attic) base moldings / plinths.

Moritz Spier House
Location:  New Haven, Connecticut
Year Built:  1895
Architects:  Brown & Von Beren
Style:  Georgian Revival

 

Consulting with Chadsworth, the architects chose a Scamozzi column capital, which was nearly an exact replica of the severely damaged originals at the main entrance.  Like much of the house, which had been neglected for many decades, the original capitals ultimately proved to be held together by 115 years of paint.  The capitals are a key feature of a strongly symmetrical façade, and the architects were grateful to remain true to the original design intent.  Brown & Von Beren Architects were very active in New Haven, and this house represents a late and rare example of very strict Georgian revival done in the East Rock neighborhood.  The original house owner, Moritz Spier, was a warm-hearted coal merchant known to have carried the accounts of hundreds of families through the many economic downturns of that period.  The house had few owners, and its highly detailed interior woodwork has thankfully remained unpainted.  Because of its large foyer and wide open central staircase, the geometry of the house helped it survive a trend of partitioning large houses into Yale graduate student apartments.  The current owners are pleased to bring this grand structure back to life.

The above project correctly superimposed (stacked) the columns.
GLOSSARY WORD
Superimposed:  Utilizing the Orders of Architecture to define the stories of a Classical façade, through the stacking of columns in a hierarchical order.  For larger façades, or when using only two orders – it is important to implement the primitive, simple Orders (Tuscan & Doric) on the bottom level, with the more decorative Orders (Ionic, Corinthian & Composite) on the upper level(s).  Correctly superimposing columns reduces the load-bearing weight upon the stacked columns, and the façade will be more aesthetically pleasing, as well as architecturally correct.
A good rule to follow is the example of the Renaissance influence, which makes the top diameter of the lower column order equal to the bottom diameter of the upper column order.  For Example:  if the bottom column diameter is 12″ tapering to a 10″ top diameter, the column sitting on top of it should have a 10″ bottom diameter tapering to an 8″ top diameter.
5.) Composite Order
4.) Corinthian Order
3.) Ionic Order
2.) Doric Order
1.) Tuscan Order

Correctly superimposing columns will help bear the weight of the structure as a whole.
