We are happy to share LGA’s work on Petrovic Cottage recently received a Historic Preservation award from Historic Ithaca.

A retired Cornell professor and his family looked to salvage a long-abandoned, Victorian summer cottage on the finger lakes. LGA created a design that transformed the space into a four seasons escape while saving the best of the original historic structure. The careful construction process even involved lifting the entire house to install a new foundation system.

The result doubled the cottage’s useable square footage while maintaining the original cottage’s massing and decorative front porch, a central character and design feature of the house.
