RESTORATION CORNER EXHIBITORS*:
Balzer + Tuck Architects
Balzer + Tuck produces thoughtfully designed buildings and places that are of an enduring quality and character. Through insightful planning, careful material selection, and intelligent detailing, they strive to help their clients create sensitive and efficient structures which enhance the built environment.
Their recent additions to a historic home in Saratoga Springs enhanced the residence’s desirable east lawn and created a large interior space for the family to formally gather. The firm was sympathetic to the existing materials and details of this Queen Anne style home. Great effort was used in the material selection, including the use of reclaimed stone for the addition’s exposed foundation wall, which was acquired from a demolished church in Vermont.
