Three Projects Receive Recognition
Three Keast & Hood projects have recently been recognized by multiple industry organizations with awards.
Preservation Pennsylvania recognized George Washington’s War Tent with a Preservation Planning Award as part of their 2017 Pennsylvania Historic Preservation Awards. Washington’s Tent is the feature exhibit for the recently opened Museum of the American Revolution. Keast & Hood worked closely with the museum’s curators and the conservator to design an unique structure that supports the delicate fabric without inducing stress, all the while remaining invisible to those viewing the artifact. The annual Preservation PA awards recognize significant contributions in the field of historic preservation in PA.
AIA Maryland has awarded two Keast & Hood projects with 2017 Excellence in Design Awards. The first is the Compton Bassett Chapel Repair and Restoration. Keast & Hood’s DC office worked with Davis Buckley Architects to restore the historic Chapel building which had experienced serious structural failures, including the collapse of the building’s rear wall. All repairs and restoration efforts were completed in an historically sensitive manner.
The second AIA Maryland Design Award was received by the University of Pennsylvania’s Moelis Family Grand Reading Room at the Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center. The project was completed by the Philadelphia office with Gensler as the Architect. The Moelis Family room at the University of Pennsylvania consists of interior renovations to create a new grand reading room to support students’ needs.
Congratulations to all our team members on the aforementioned projects. Let Keast & Hood support your next award winning design!
