Elka Park House Historic Recreation

Elka Park, New York

This project required the recreation of a historic 1890’s cottage in Elka Park, a private gated community developed for wealthy industrialists in the Catskills, that was destroyed by fire. The home was constructed on the original site and the design was based on photographs and the memories shared by area residents. The new building remained as faithful to the original design as possible while incorporating new amenities in the kitchen and bathrooms. Careful attention was paid to authentic recreation of details and finishes.
