Rebuilding Lexington [Virginia] Presbyterian Church, Lexington. Congregation of fire-gutted 1844 Thomas Ustick Walter sanctuary calls Brian to document, restore integrity of water-soaked brick walls. Designs new rapidly-built protective roof. He precisely restores building from photographs, but steals signature details for new work from Walter’s standing Greek Revival buildings. Conceals replaced HVAC supply. Creates comfortable, convenient, acoustically reverberant worship space, deferring to Walter so well that few realize the church burned. [Honor Award, Virginia Society American Institute of Architects, Central Virginia Chapter American Institute of Architects; Founder’s Award, Historic Lexington Foundation] “Brian spoke to the Session. He brought periodic news of the work to our congregational dinners. He supplemented his scheduled Construction Site visits by promptly returning for unscheduled ones to address surprises. Our VSAIA award, of which we are proud, confirms that we did good by the congregation and town. The church is very pleased with Brian.” [William Klein, LLD, Pastor] Relocation and Rehabilitation of the Retreat for the Sick Students, University of Virginia (UVa). A university eyesore is scheduled for demolition so that the Commerce School might expand. Due diligence reveals it as ingenious student health facility specifically designed to support nascent (1858) nursing profession: it must be preserved. Architect of the University selects new Retreat site, charges Brian with move and rehabilitation. Brian sets First and Second Floors on top of authentically-replicated, safely-sited, pre-plumbed Basement. 1858 painted Italianate exterior and orientation clashes with Jefferson’s plan. Brian threads through tight construction inconspicuous HVAC, fire-suppression systems, and new power and data systems. Qualifies for Commonwealth Historic Preservation Tax Credits. [Honor Award, Virginia Society American Institute of Architects] “No one wanted an office in the Retreat before Brian’s work. Meeting Interior’s standards, the architect created a structure that the University Provost covets. As an employee of the Board of Visitors, that is my definition of success here.” [Brian Hogg, Senior Preservation Planner]
