Loudoun County, Va

Waterford is one of America’s most distinctive villages and is a National Htistoric Landmark. Quakers settled this milling hamlet in the early 18th century. Log, stone, and brick are common materials in this compact community. There are few modern intrusions and many parcels extend to open fields beyond. Much of the architecture and surrounding land is protected by easements.

Frazier Associates worked closely with County staff, the Historic District Review Committee, and the Waterford Foundation to create new guidelines for the village. These guidelines concentrated on the challenges of its unique topography and the preservation of its historic integrity. A 3-D massing model of the village was created using contour maps to ensure an accurate representation.
