LOOK + IDENTIFY
The windows and decorative stone work are distinctive, but the roof and
roof features dominate. This roof is not only highly visible, it has elaborate
stone dormers, decorative metalwork, and slatework. The red and black
slates of differing sizes and shapes are laid in patterns that extend
around the entire roof.
WHAT IF THE ROOF IS ALTERED?
Any changes to the roof form, patterned slate work, or other roofing
details would damage the visual character of the building.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?
Preserve a character-defining roof and roof features in the process of rehabilitating a historic building for a continuing or new use!
