5 Comal County Courthouse, New Braunfels Volz & Associates

Designed in the Romanesque Revival style, this building is one of James Riely Gordon’s 12 remaining Texas courthouses. In restoring this 1898 structure to its original configuration, Comal County officials repeatedly opted for accurate restoration over less developed, inexpensive solutions. The County’s good stewardship was reflected in the community’s support and involvement over the course of the project. 6 Stevens Park Pavilion, Dallas

ARCHITEXAS

This 1934 park pavilion, of stone and mortar construction, had fallen into disrepair largely due to subsidence and erosion of soils along the city’s Coombs Creek. As part of the meticulous restoration project, the pavilion was methodically deconstructed, with its 4,867 native stones stored in a carefully catalogued inventory. It was reassembled on a new, drilled-pier foundation further from the edge of the creek.

Mission San Juan is a State Antiquities Landmark, a National Register of Historic Places property, and part of the upcoming San Antonio Missions World Heritage nomination. It also has an active congregation, with many of its parishioners able to trace their lineage back to original mission inhabitants. The recent careful restoration project renewed and transformed the landmark, which once suffered from structural movement and damaged plaster.
