Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the 1835 Bishop House is a striking example of Colonial architecture. Morpurgo Architects is privileged to be selected by the Borough to convert this building, fallen into disrepair, into a Community and Cultural Center for the residents of Saddle River.
As a recipient of the State Historic Preservation Award, and in Gus’ role as Past Chairman of the Saddle River Landmarks Commission, we have extensive experience that prepared us to restore with historic accuracy the Bishop House to meet the needs of modern times.
From leaking roof, sagging floors and broken ceilings, we are Transforming both the exterior and interior, using contemporary finishes that are historically sensitive, to create a large, open public meeting space with a coffered ceiling, and adding to the dining room French doors that lead to a patio and garden, among other beautiful enhancements.
Morpurgo Architects has had a long, creative history with the Borough, and we look forward to seeing this significant project come to fruition!
