Perspectus Project for City of Massillon Honored With Excellence in Preservation Education Award
May 23, 2018 – Perspectus Historic Architecture, Chambers, Murphy & Burge Studio, was recognized last night at the Celebration of Preservation hosted by AIA Cleveland and the Cleveland Restoration Society for their work on Design Guidelines for the Massillon Downtown Historic District. The project won the award for Excellence in Preservation Education.
Principals Elizabeth Corbin Murphy, Larry Fischer, and Peter Bohan attended last night’s event. Design Guidelines provide citizens and property owners with the historical context of their community and illustrate the types of buildings that represent the city’s unique past and instill a sense of pride. The Guidelines highlight different types and styles of buildings found in the community and describe the historic values, influences, and features that are associated with each. Describing proper maintenance of historic materials, the Guidelines provide helpful information to property owners on metal work, brick and stone masonry, windows and doors, and roofing and rainwater systems.
