Scott’s Addition Project in Richmond BizSense

Scott's Addition Warehouse InteriorWe’re excited to see one of our newest projects in Scott’s Addition featured in Richmond BizSense today! We’re working with SpyRock Real Estate to redevelop a 36,000 square foot warehouse currently used by the furniture manufacturer McKinnon and Harris for commercial use.

Since the building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, our design balances careful consideration for the historic fabric of the building and neighborhood with the functional needs for a change of use.  Working closely with the Virginia Department of Historic Resources and National Park Service, we adding new window openings and other amenities for the future tenants as well as taking advantage of the Federal and State Historic Tax Credit Program. We are excited to begin a new chapter for a great building.

Modelogic Updates

Wellborn + Wright are putting the finishing touches on the steel and glass partitions today at Modelogic’s Mid-Atlantic office, located in Richmond, VA! Today, the team is installing the doors on the phone booth and private offices.

Modelogic is located in a historic building in the heart of Church Hill. For the renovation we took a reductive approach: all “modern” partitions were removed, with the historic interior painted a crisp white. New white oak floors add warmth while steel and glass partitions provide translucent dividers between varied program requirements ranging from open conference areas, agent offices, and private meeting rooms.

Historic Richmond: Design Infill Awards Announced

Architecture AF’s entry recently won First Prize in the professional category for Historic Richmond’s Drawing on History: Infill Design Competition. 

See all of the design entries specifically created for two of Richmond’s growing areas — Union Hill and Jackson Ward in Drawing on History: Infill Design Competition at The Branch Museum of Architecture and Design now through Sunday, September 4.

From our Prospectus:

Historic Richmond neighborhoods including Union Hill and Jackson Ward are coming back to life, attracting new generation of residents. It is hard to pin down exactly what makes these neighborhoods so attractive, but we can speculate that it emerges from a community “ambiance.” It is the feeling one gets walking along the sidewalk of a tree lined street waving to a neighbor. The buildings themselves have a consistency that facilitate this: all buildings, through a seemingly implicit pact, mostly conform in scale, material and arrangement of public and private spaces to create, at the meta level, a community “ambiance.” Thus the appeal of the neighborhood becomes neighborhood itself; like a coral reef, the beauty is the reef and its colorful inhabitants. There is no scenic view or anchor Starbucks that gives the neighborhood life, it comes from within. Continue reading about our Union Hill Work Live design
