The Reserve lauded as excellent lesson in contemporary architecture

Style Weekly’s Edwin Slipek Jr. this week takes a look at West Broad’s Iron House Place and The Reserve on 25th Street, calling both “excellent lessons in how to introduce bold and contemporary architecture to historic sectors.” Speaking of the award-winning hillside condos, Slipek says:

… the glory of this building is its pair of monitors — each with a slightly curved roof that pushes beyond the traditional roofline. These add a delightful and unexpected visual exclamation point. And they play off a long tradition of tower-like projections in Richmond’s industrial buildings.
