Brambleton: Dairy Barn Undergoes Daring Transformation

Success begets success. Having seen our architectural transformation of Sweeney Barn into a popular event space, Loveless Porter was a natural choice when the Brambleton developers sought to breathe new life into a 1950s dairy barn in Ashburn, Virginia. With our help, this Northern Virginia landmark will reopen its doors as the Soave Center for the Arts: a performance and event venue, hosting concerts, weddings, community gatherings, and Brambleton Presbyterian Church services. (Learn about the building's history.) Interior features of the redesigned historic structure include gathering halls, offices, suites, and a kitchen. Throughout, architectural modifications add modern convenience and improve the building’s structural integrity while preserving a nod to its rural past. LPA remains involved in the project, working closely with our client and builder Morgan-Keller to see our vision through from conception to construction.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Loveless Porter (@loveless.porter)
