Global Headquarters
Lawrenceville, New Jersey

These twin Dutch inspired buildings house the global headquarters of the world’s leading importer of exotic fruit concentrates and an investment property for the owner. Taking its cue from the area’s Dutch Revival architecture and in homage to this client’s birthplace, the two buildings are exacting replicas of typical Dutch buildings, with their stucco and brick façades, their gabled roofs and narrow windows. Built in 2001, the buildings have become local landmarks and further the rich architectural character of the area which is dotted with many important pre-revolutionary buildings.

Schedule: Completed 2010

Applecross is a distinctive community of estate and carriage homes set in a mature and historic landscape with rolling hills in Downingtown, PA. The residences are organized around an 18-hole championship level Nicklaus-designed golf course. We designed the amenity buildings for this project, including a 10,000 square foot fitness club, a golf clubhouse with casual and fine dining options and a halfway house (snack bar) located on the 9th hole. We also restored an 18th century barn that is used for storage of golf carts and other equipment.
