Skydoor Addition

On West Hamilton Place in the Hamilton Park Historic District, the team was asked to give this blasé home a suite of amenities that harmonized with its park-facing location. Eager to add surrounding rooftop views without disparaging this home’s historic integrity, the team employed an innovative solution to meet the client’s needs.

Rooftop Renovation 

With a slew of modern rooftop structures, Glazing Vision’s skydoor product proved to be a viable solution to the team’s dilemma. Mimicking the appearance of a standard skylight, the skydoor is a state-of-the-art, fully-operable, electronic feature that grants inconspicuous rooftop access. Its unobtrusive proportions offer sustained historic preservation in the form of a coveted amenity.

Inside, peeling paint tarnished hardwood floors, cramped spaces lacked natural light and outdated appliances and fixtures filled each room; however, the team recognized the potential behind these off-putting features. They began by gutting the third floor to make way for a floor-through master suite, complete with a sunlit bedroom, large walk-in closet and a luxurious bathroom boasting a custom walnut vanity, separate soaking tub and a marble shower.

Downtown Jersey City Restoration Process


At garden level, the team fashioned a new bathroom and laundry room into the rear extension to fully maximize the home’s square footage. Throughout the remainder of the home, warm additions were made in the form of taupe colors, marble accents and polished nickel fixtures, while original casings, crown moldings, rosettes and pocket doors were meticulously refurbished to preserve this home’s historic integrity.
