A Modern Extension for Historic Wyckoff House

wyckoff-house-addition-032613
Inhabitat has renderings for the new addition at the Pieter Claesen Wyckoff House, the city’s oldest structure, now a museum. The plans seem quite different from what we had envisioned when we first wrote about the addition. Strikingly modern, the new space is completely separate from the old house and based on old farm outbuildings on the property. It is strategically placed between the Wyckoff House and the street to shield the 1652 structure from its now-urban surroundings. Designed by nARCHITECTS,  the new build will house administrative offices as well as museum activities and displays. The grounds are also due for new landscaping with native plants. Construction will start later this year. GMAP
