This project will repurpose the 19th-century mansion’s existing buildings and rooms, and implement energy conservation measures during the rehab. These works will turn parlors and bedrooms into art galleries, a hands-on space for children’s art & education center, a museum café, and public programming spaces. The Conservancy is proud to have helped connect this building and four-acre lot to its bright future. We are grateful to Woodmere for offering this exclusive tour of the site by the project’s leaders.
The Patricia Van Burgh Allison Director and CEO at the Woodmere Museum, Bill Valerio, will perform a tour to illustrate The Frances M. Maguire Hall Project. Valerio will be joined in his explanations by The Klorfine Foundation Director of Development, Anne Standish; and Principal and Director of Practice Development at Andropogon Associates, Darren Damone.
Bill Valerio and Anne Standish will provide general information about the project, focusing on the impressive sustainability elements found in the interior of the building. They will be joined by landscape designer Darren Damone, who will provide an in-depth analysis of the exterior and surrounding spaces. After enjoying a tour of both the interior and exterior of the 19th-century mansion, attendees will be provided refreshments.
