Featured Project // July 2024


Introducing July’s featured project from the 2024 Horner Wall Calendar: the Library at Bellevue House in Newport, Rhode Island. This project is a beautiful new addition to the historic Bellevue House, an early-twentieth-century estate renowned for its federal-revival architecture. Designed by Couture Design Associates of Providence, RI, and built by Parker Construction of Rumford, RI, the Library perfectly complements the original house and gardens.


Featuring Kolbe Windows & Doors // Horner Millwork proudly supplied the custom Kolbe Windows & Doors for the Library at Bellevue House. Selected by the architect to authentically replicate the historic details of the estate, these windows and doors seamlessly integrate with the Federal-revival style of the original Bellevue House while providing modern performance and efficiency.

Thank You // We extend our sincere gratitude to Couture Design Associates and Parker Construction for selecting Horner Millwork for this prestigious project. It is an honor to contribute to such a beautifully executed and historically respectful project, demonstrating the versatility and superior quality of Kolbe Windows & Doors.

The magnificent gardens surrounding Bellevue House are the subject of “The Adventures of a Narrative Gardener,” a book by Ronald Lee Fleming, the author and owner of the property. In this book, Fleming vividly portrays the garden he has cultivated at Bellevue House in Newport, delving into its diverse sources, many of which hold deeply personal memories.
