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)

Route 7 Brewing

Work continues on Route 7 Brewing in Asburn, VA. Loveless Porter is designing the interior tenant layout and managing construction of this 5,000 square foot building in the Lexington 7 Project. As with most brewery development, this Loudoun County project is multifaceted and calls for the architect to seamlessly blend uses: In addition to the unique utility and safety considerations that go into brewery design, Loveless Porter worked with the client to visually and physically connect the indoor areas — featuring a brewery, taproom, restaurant, and entertainment space — to the large patio. The owners of Route 7 Brewing plan to offer a variety of live performances, such as bands and open mic poetry, along with a DJ booth and dance floor.

Prince William Chamber of Commerce

After 13 years in the same building, the Prince William Chamber of Commerce — one of the Washington, DC region’s largest business associations — entrusted Loveless Porter Architects to design new headquarters to better meet the needs of this growing organization. The new offices will offer ground level entry in a larger space, along with improved accessibility and visibility. We are designing with flexibility in mind, so that Chamber staff can adapt their offices to accommodate a wide range of member events and activities.
