Hoyt-Potter House

This project included restoration and rehabilitation of a 7,000 square foot, two-story, Greek Revival structure for the Landmark Society of Western New York headquarters. The nineteenth century house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The work was funded with an Environmental Quality Bond Act (EQBA) matching grant. Professional services included program development, schematic design, final design, bidding, and project administration. Plans and specifications were developed in accordance with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation and were approved by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.


In addition to interior and exterior work on the structure, the project also included sitework for historic landscaping, surface parking, and provisions for access ramps to the ground and first floors coordinated with neighboring buildings. Universal access was provided to the historic Campbell-Whittlesey House Museum, just north of the Hoyt-Potter House. (Bero Architecture served as the Consulting Architect under a separate contract for EQBA funded repairs at the Campbell-Whittlesey House). The combined work at the Hoyt-Potter and Campbell-Whittlesey Houses comprised a larger plan of the Landmark Society to create an urban campus that included the two houses.
