W:1515 Brett Garage and Carriagehouse�3 Models1515_15-11-17_B

In April of 2015, the historic carriage house located at 533 Mill Street was destroyed in a fire. Constructed in 1906 with additions built in 1907-1909 and 1924-1925, the building served the Royster family’s three homes around Mowbray Arch and Warren Crescent, housing six cars below and the chauffer and mechanic in a small apartment above. WPA has been working with the home-owners, the City, the Architectural Review Board, the Sargeant Memorial Collection, and the Ghent Neighborhood League on a design for a replacement to the historic carriage house that fits seamlessly back into the neighborhood, alludes strongly to the original building, but asserts itself as a 2016 building.W:1515 Brett Garage and Carriagehouse�3 Models1515_15-11-17_B

IMG_6011The WPA team had a fantastic first-ever company retreat in Cape Charles, Virginia.  We stayed at the beautiful Hotel Cape Charles, and it was a perfect fit for fun and learning in a space well-designed for both. We reviewed and analyzed our past 4-1/2 years of growth and success, and set goals for the next 5 years.  The entire WPA team came away even more energized, focused, and excited as we head into  2016, carrying with us a renewed sense of vigor and passion in serving our clients.

WPA is thrilled to partner with For the People Projects on Oozlefinch Craft Brewery in Hampton, VA. The project is located at Fort Monroe and is BCOM project. Jen Stringer (longtime friend and collaborator) is the Lead Designer and Owner of For the People Projects. WPA is the Architect of Record, assisting Jen with her work as Lead Designer and Owner’s Representative.  Oozlefinch Craft Brewery honors the legend of the “Oozlefinch,” a featherless bird that flies backward at supersonic speeds. Under the influence of alcohol, Captain H.M. Merriam first sighted the Oozlefinch outside the officer’s club at Fort Monroe. Over time, reports of Oozlefinch sightings became more common, sketches were made, and a statue of the Oozlefinch was erected on Fort Monroe.Oozlefinch2_2

This award and the recognition by our peers is truly an honor and a capstone to our 5th year as a firm. Thank you all.
