Hayden Residence

Located in Richmond's Saint John's Old and Historic and sited on Libby Terrace overlooking the James River, this 1880's home was not taking advantage of a spectacular view. A 1980's renovation had removed the view from the home's interior and created dramatic floor openings that left the remaining spaces difficult to arrange and somewhat unusable.  The home owner wanted a cleanly designed house that took advantage of the view, appreciated the historic architecture, retained some of the drama of the 1980's renovation, and was functional. The project took advantage of Historic Preservation Tax Credits.
