The Vance Federal Courthouse, originally built in 1921, is an excellent example of the Classical Revival style of architecture - a conservative four level white marble building that features free-standing iconic columns. Originally, the building was constructed with only two levels, then a two-story addition was added in the late 1920's.
A beautiful grand entrance is on the South elevation. Classic casement windows on the first level feature a design we have never seen before. The sash sits on the outside of the sill and has custom hardware - a brass lever connected to the hinge that lifts the entire sash by 1/2" so it will clear the sill and allow for an interior hinge operation.
Re-View evaluated the windows as part of a full survey of the building in December 2011. We will be manufacturing custom windows in American Walnut.
