Giese House Project Featured on Tour - October 18, 2014
The Giese House in Lincoln, which Wolf Architects renovated and expanded, was one of four houses featured on a tour of "4 Centuries of Architecture," sponsored by the Friends of Modern Architecture/Lincoln. Our project encompassed an addition, along with new sheds, a patio and numerous small interior modifications. Together, these interventions respected the original Henry Hoover design while enhancing the livability of the house.
Hoover was an early-modern architect who designed Lincoln's first modern house beginning in 1935 (now presented as the Hoover House). He is the subject of a recent documentary and forthcoming book, Breaking Ground: Henry B. Hoover, New England Modern Architect.
