Plumfield Restoration Columbus, GA

Spitzmiller & Norris is a proud recipient of The Philip Trammell Shutze Award 2011 for Preservation/Restoration for “Plumfield” presented by The Institute of Classical Architecture & Classical America-Southeast Chapter.

Winner of Excellence in Preservation Award from the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation for Rehabilitation/Restoration 2010

This classical-revival house was built in Columbus, Georgia, in 1938. The current owner had closed the house a number of years ago and had been living elsewhere. Although the house and grounds were nominally maintained during this time, without someone in residence the house and its gardens had suffered from inadvertent neglect. Happily, in 2005, the owner not only decided to plan to occupy the house once again as his family’s principle residence, but to restore and renovate it to the highest standards. In analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of the house and its gardens the family realized several areas, which, if refined and updated, would greatly enhance the experience of living in the house.

Primarily, they knew they would enjoy a more literal and visual connectedness between the house and its grounds. This would require several carefully harmonious additions. Secondarily, the family longed to create areas in the very formal house where casual gatherings of family and friends could occur more naturally and comfortably. To achieve this change in function former service areas were conscripted to become family areas.

Greek Revival in style, this house is particularly distinguished by its very fine amphypro-style porticos.
