PROJECT DESCRIPTION

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. The carriage house accommodated six cars below and the chauffer and mechanic in a small apartment above. Work Program Architects workied with the homeowners, the City of Norfolk, the Architectural Review Board, the Sergeant Memorial Collection, and the Ghent Neighborhood League on a design for a replacement of the historic carriage house that fits seamlessly into the neighborhood, alludes strongly to the original building, but asserts itself as a contemporary building.
