Historic Preservation


Charleston, WV



This historic renovation and restoration project undertaken by Silling Architects involved the phased renovation of the third and fourth floors of the East Wing of the West Virginia State Capitol Building, which was originally designed by renowned architect Cass Gilbert in the early 1930s.

Various architectural, interior, and historic restoration improvements, as well as mechanical/electrical/plumbing systems modernizations, were made. The project required significant collaboration and communication with the Supreme Court Administrative Director, Supreme Court Justices, Security staff, and the State Capitol Building Commission.
