Capturing difficult perspectives for potential funders

It isn’t surprising or unexpected that, when you develop blighted historic houses as opportunities for homeownership, that funders want exterior views of all four sides of the house.  This is particularly the case for the State Historic Preservation Office. 

The two houses at 279 and 285 Farmington present a challenge in this regard, as they are so close together.  And although it fits very well with the original house, this eastern part of 285 Farmington is not historic – it was an addition constructed in the 1980s by TSKP Group, which had their offices here.

So, a couple of shots to show the effort, plus one bleak, dystopic shot of both houses.
