I too feel that the modern extension and original are too far removed from each other in look and feel to call it a seamless transition. It looks very much like you are walking out of the old and into the very new stark modern new. Not saying I am disliking it all but I do think there is a far more definite line between old and new as opposed to seamless.

I am sure the owners would be thrilled with the result none the less.
