MRT Preview: Sadler & Whitehead // The Boat House / by Modern Richmond

We are pleased to offer a special behind the scenes preview of May's Exchange event.  Architects Mimi Sadler and Camden Whitehead were kind enough to share a bit of the design process, including a sampling of sketches and construction drawings.  In a city like Richmond with its rich stock of vintage buildings, this renovation offers many lessons for how to strike a balance between contemporary design, sustainability and historic character. Don't miss it.

Special thanks to Camden and Mimi for opening their home to Modern Richmond Tour, and for sharing their story.  We'll see you at the event.
