The Magdalen House Dallas, TX
In addition to the restoration of original exterior finish, the rear additions were removed and replaced with a new addition to support the project program and be more compatible with the original structure and integrate with the historic roof line. Other work included opening the front porch at the ground and upper level, restoration of the original front entrance door and sidelights, restoration of the entrance hall stair and paneling and exposing original fireplaces and finishes where these remained.
What was created is beautifully done and something we are so honored to be able to use in furthering our mission.
The project, which was completed in Spring 2021, contributes to the restoration of the Gaston Avenue streetscape, and restores one of the remaining Gaston Avenue residential structures for the next 100 years as a part of the continued revitalization of Old East Dallas.
