Keeping the Heritage Alive in this 1880s Home Renovation

Sometimes we get a bit stuck in the past with heritage homes, fixating on the original build year and forget that the home and society has evolved over 140 years. Queen Bess Row was built in 1886, and ZGA Studio wanted to keep the heritage alive and relevant but in a more contemporary world. Subtle interventions were made during the heritage renovation, including the inclusion of a glass lift, but all was done to not only honour its past but also reflect how we live today.
