The IHBC’s heritage business register HESPR – our Historic Environment Service Providers Recognition quality assurance scheme for heritage services – emails members weekly ‘News and Tender Alerts’, and this week features ArchDaily on Wright’s Frederick Bagley House dodging demolition for restoration.
… The five-bedroom residence….will not only evade the wrecking ball but also be restored by its new, preservation-minded owners….
Matt Hickman for ArchDaily writes (6 Sept 2021):
Less than two months ago, the future of an 1894 Dutch Colonial-style home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright wasn’t looking all that bright after it hit the market for $1.3 million in the Chicago suburb of Hinsdale, Illinois. As of this week, however, the historic Frederick Bagley House, described by the nonprofit Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy as a ‘unique and irreplaceable’ early work of Wright, has found a very happy ending—or, more aptly, a new beginning.
The five-bedroom residence, which has been subject to alterations over the decades and did not enjoy legal protection from demolition or redevelopment, will not only evade the wrecking ball but also be restored by its new, preservation-minded owners.
