Embracing the modern, Riversiders earn preservation award

Last month, Serge Ambrose and Michelangelo Sabatino had been recognized by the Frederick Law Olmsted Modern society of Riverside for the restoration of their dwelling and yard. The 2022 Preservation Award acknowledges the couple’s endeavours to restore the 1939 International Type structure, regarded as the Benda Household, equally inside of and out.

Sabatino, a professor of architectural background and historic preservation at Illinois Institute of Technology’s School of Architecture, and Ambrose, an architect and engineer targeted on 20th-century architectural heritage, introduced a wealth of expertise to the challenge when they acquired their residence in Riverside. 

The two are also lively with Docomomo US, an global group for the advocacy and documentation of fashionable structures and web sites.
