In July 1997, Mimi Sadler and Camden Whitehead formed Sadler & Whitehead Architects PLC, a small, Richmond, Virginia-based business that focuses on historic preservation and adaptive reuse. The firm has developed dozens of state and federal investment tax-credit packages for public and private entities, as well as nomination reports for individual properties and historic districts on the National Register of Historic Places. Sadler & Whitehead prepares reports for state and federal agencies that enable those agencies to anticipate and respond to historic preservation regulations and review processes.

The firm’s strength is its ability to participate in the generation of modern solutions within the limitations of existing structures, without compromising their historic character.

In addition to historic consultation, Sadler & Whitehead provides architectural services for small commercial and residential projects. These projects are characterized by a responsibility to project limitations, including sensitivity to budget, thoughtful and innovative uses of humble materials, and participation in an age-old dialogue of architcture, construction and culture.

Mimi Sadler and Camden Whitehead formed Sadler & Whitehead Architects PLC in July 1997 to pursue their goal of running a very small, woman-owned firm that specializes in thoughtful design and creative reuse of historic property. In 2004 they were joined by Llewellyn Hensley, who brings great skills in photography, writing, and organization. Together Mimi and Llewellyn have developed dozens of state and federal investment tax credit packages for public and private owners. They’ve worked with many owners to get their individual properties and historic districts listed in the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places. They also prepare reports for state and federal agencies that enable those agencies to anticipate and respond to historic preservation requirements.

We’re interested in teaming with others to generate modern solutions within the limitations of existing structures, without compromising their historic character. In addition to his day-to-day teaching responsibilities, Camden provides architectural services for small commercial and residential projects. He is always happy to paint watercolors on commission.

The firm’s projects are characterized by their creative response to project limitations, including budget and existing conditions. We believe in thoughtful and innovative uses of humble materials, and enjoy participating in the age-old dialogue of architecture, construction and culture.
