The Preservation Trust of Vermont awarded a 2022 Preservation Award to the Lincoln Place Apartments project team at the Downtown and Historic Preservation Conference on June 9th, 2022, in St. Johnsbury, VT. Congratulations to the entire Lincoln Place Housing Team; The Housing Trust of Rutland County, Arnold & Scangas Architects and their design team, and countless supporters and contributors who helped this Historic Adaptive Reuse project come to life.
The Lincoln Place Apartments occupy what was once the Immaculate Heart of Mary School, an International-style building built in 1951 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2020. Some additional details about the project as excerpted from its registry application: “The Immaculate Heart of Mary School is an International Style two-story, steel-framed building clad in glazed brick with a rear, one-story gymnasium ell. The fenestration, flat roofs, and minimal decorative features are streamlined and emphasize horizontal lines punctuated by a few strong vertical elements like the three entries. It is accented by glass block panels, ribbon windows, and a monumental, two-story, glazed aluminum frame curtain wall at the main entry.”
Now home to 19 units of affordable housing and community spaces, Lincoln Place Housing is furthering the positive impact that historic preservation, sustainability, and affordable housing bring to communities throughout our Region.
