Andersen’s new A-Series product line has taken the Big Apple by storm and has proven to be an effective design solution for New York City’s historic brownstone buildings.
Last year, a New York City project for This Old House brought a number of inquiries to Brooklyn-based builder, MRS Construction. One project, a home on the city’s Upper East Side, was recently completed featuring Andersen® A-Series windows.
Located on East 65th Street, the home is one of just 12 homes that share the private Jones Woods Gardens. Early in the 20th Century, these homes were remade to face not the streets, but a huge sunken garden in the rear. The garden's namesake recalls a popular 19th Century park in the neighborhood: Jones's Wood.
The This Old House project team knew the A-Series product line offered the flexibility and customization needed for this project. With these windows, they’d be able to capitalize on the garden view, without sacrificing style. There were 11, double-hung
, custom windows installed, including one that was seven-and-a-half feet tall. The three, hinged inswing patio doors
have transom windows and use Covington™ hardware in bright brass finish. All the windows and doors were specified with black exterior trim and a white, pre-finished interior. Black, Colonial pattern grilles were featured in all of the windows and doors.
“We were able to highly customize this project using A-Series windows while remaining compliant with the historic landmark preservation guidelines,” said Michael Streaman of MRS Construction. “We’ll use A-Series products again in upcoming projects.”
