Historic Preservation in Dallas {Architectural Photography}

Usually, when I photograph architecture, it is for newer construction and modern renovations. I definitely love modern architecture, but I also love seeing efforts to preserve architectural history in our city and admire how Preservation Dallas honors the work done by Dallas businesses to preserve and revitalize our city.

A few years ago, I photographed the Dallas Municipal Court building at 2014 Main Street for GSR Andrade Architects after they did extensive renovations of the building. That project was selected for an award from Preservation Achievement Award in 2014.

More recently I was honored to photograph the exterior renovations of the connected building at 106 S. Harwood for the Conley Group. It is a beautiful building that is being redesigned as the future home of the University of North Texas Dallas College of Law. Although it is still currently under construction, I'm eager to share some of the details completed by the Conley Group on the exterior. Like it's neighbor, this project was also submitted and selected for a Preservation Achievement Award and will receive an award in May. Congratulations to all who worked on this renovation!

This beautiful building was originally designed by C. D. Hill in the Beaux-Arts style and completed in 1913.

Farrell Dining Hall at PVAMU {Architectural Photography}

Prairie View A&M University's new Farrell Dining Hall sports an industrial chic interior that blends bold colors with warm wood accents. It upholds the University's legacy and history while making an exciting new dining atmosphere for students. GSR Andrade Architects preserved and highlighted historical aspects of the existing building by incorporating the original laundromat scale as a feature in the dining space and created a vibrant mural depicting the historic campus with an image of the building's namesake, Henrietta Farrell. GSR Andrade and Archer Construction & Design partnered on this modern food hub that also includes a Grab-And-Go deli and laundry facilities to address multiple college student needs.
