Transcript of Neo-Victorian Architecture

:NEO VICTORIAN ARCHITECTURE: A Presentation By: Dylan Ahern The Neo-Victorian style of architecture
began in the 1970's, and is sometimes also
referred to as the Neo-Eclectic architectural
style, called so because it is a revival of
architecture used in previous decades, such as
the Victorian and Second Empire styles. This
style is commonly found in the Monmouth
County area, mostly in the developments in
Colts Neck and Freehold Township. Neo-Victorian homes are typically 2 to 3 stories high. each floor has
a high ceiling, however, so the homes appear to possess more floors than
this. The building materials for these homes include a cement basement,
a combination of some type of brick or stone and siding for the exterior
walls, and a shingled roof. Features of these Neo-Victorian homes include
large, extravagant staircases inside, hard wood floors, and elaborate roof
layouts with many shapes and different slopes. Neo-Victorian homes use many slopes on their roofs and
multiple gables and towers, just like their predecessors from
the Victorian Era, as seen below. They also possess a very
off balance style to them, nothing is symmetric about these
homes. They use earthy colors, very different from the
original Victorian homes. These houses are used almost
wholly for residential purposes, and are found in many
developments in the Monmouth County area. http://jan.ucc.nau.edu/~twp/architecture/postmodernres/
