Annapolis, our home
We chose Annapolis as our home because it allows us to breathe historic architecture every day. Our passion for the story behind the ever-changing forms and details of the buildings and gardens that surround us is the driving force behind our dedication to historic restoration and preservation.
The steps we go through
The first step in any preservation project is to analyze the building and grounds with the help of historians, archaeologists and dendrochronologists. Once the site is thoroughly investigated, we use our expertise with colonial and early American architecture to design historically appropriate features for the buildings and the gardens. We then work as a team with specialized artisans and craftsmen. Many times, the final step consists in opening the site to the public. Future generations can then experience history in person, by walking through its buildings and gardens.
Restoration and Preservation of Maryland Historic Landmark
Kimmel Studio - Buildings & Gardens is currently working on a fascinating restoration project. We are in charge of both the architecture and the landscape architecture necessary to restore a colonial era home.
The original house was built at the beginning of the eighteenth century. Since then, it has undergone several transformations, including a renovation in the high Georgian fashion done toward the end of eighteenth century.
The project is in its early stages. We are currently analyzing the house and the site with the help of a team of prestigious historians and archaeologists. In the video below you will spot archaeologists working next to the house.
