Archer & Buchanan Wins Preservation Award

Archer & Buchanan Architecture, Ltd. won Preservation Award

Archer & Buchanan Architecture, Ltd. has won a Preservation Award for the conversion of an 1898 stable in Wayne into a private residence. Known for the design of elegant country homes and classic college buildings, Archer & Buchanan received the award from the Heritage Commission of Delaware County who praised the “wonderful detail and craftsmanship…[in] maintaining the integrity of the historic structure.”

Peter Archer, AIA, principal of the West Chester-based firm, accepted the award at a ceremony on May 6th. “We are grateful to have been able to give new life to this extraordinary building,” said Archer. “It is not often one comes across an incredible piece of architecture and a client who shares an appreciation for its history.”

Originally designed by celebrated Art & Crafts architect William L. Price, the Tudor stable was part of the Allen H. Reed Estate in Radnor Township. With great attention to detail and respect for the original design, Archer & Buchanan completely restored and renovated the structure into a four bedroom and three and a half bath residence.

The Heritage Commission and the Delaware County Council have been presenting preservation awards since 1978 to highlight National Preservation Month. The Commission recognizes outstanding contribution to the region in Construction, Publications, Special Projects, and Outstanding Individual.

Projects have included new structures as well as renovations, additions, country property planning, master planning and feasibility studies, and adaptive re-use of buildings.
