At the Coldwater Museum in Hillsdale, New York, Incorporated had to marry a modern gallery/loft addition to an existing historic structure. In order not to compete with the historic fabric, Incorporated created a clean wood box clad in a cedar rain screen pattered after vernacular forms found in corn cribs. Although they were complete opposites with regard to fenestration, they shared proportions. The result was a dialogue between the simple box of the new and the historic facade. To keep the box minimal and pure, windows and mechanical systems were suppressed behind the screen and the building access was submerged below grade. The plan allowed for the gallery to be converted to lofts at a later date.
