Charles Hilton Architects is thrilled to announce the release of their new book, Classic Greenwich Houses. The book explores nine estates that illustrate the firm’s creativity and ingenuity to design houses that both honor tradition, while seamlessly integrating modern amenities that are painstakingly incorporated into each space. Featuring 200 stunning images of detailed interiors, exteriors, and expansive landscapes, Classic Greenwich Houses is ideal for architectural professionals, students, and admirers of classic residential design.
The book includes a thoughtful introduction by Charles Hilton outlining his connection to Greenwich and the community and situating his practice within the architectural history of the area. Hilton has practiced in Greenwich for more than thirty years, and he is fluent with its rich and diverse architectural heritage. This means that his houses, while meticulously detailed and impressive, are also beautifully integrated into the panoramic waterfronts, rolling lawns and rustic back-country landscapes that are characteristic of Greenwich and the surrounding countryside.
