AIA Chesapeake Cloverfield Tour

American Cedar & Millwork’s Maryland Architectural Specialist, Rich Jones, joined the AIA Chesapeake Chapter’s Cloverfield House and Gardens tour and presentation which took place on May 11th.   Cloverfield is an historic Eastern Shore estate undergoing a massive archaeological and architectural restoration. 

Project leads, Kimmel Studio Architects and builder Lynbrook of Annapolis discussed how research of the period (first constructed in 1705 and restored to the property’s period of most significance circa 1784) and discoveries found on site impacted the restoration process as well as the challenges they faced in implementing modern systems into an historic home, and the design solutions that allowed for the incorporation of these systems, without compromising the preservation of the space.

The discovery, documentation, and restoration were done with the best historic practices, in accordance with the National Park Service Restoration Standards. The AIA Chesapeake Chapter has the exclusive opportunity to visit and explore this extraordinary example of historic preservation.

The AIA Chesapeake Bay is committed to offering their members interesting and unique programs that highlight both their amazing work, and the importance of bringing an architect into any major renovation, restoration, addition or new construction project.
