Swan House Museum

Swan House Museum

Atlanta, GA

Lord Aeck Sargent’s work at the Atlanta History Center’s Swan House included the restoration of the 1920s structure to continue its use as an historic house museum and the creation of a 1,800 sf museum for a significant decorative arts collection.

The firm integrated new systems, including climate controls, fire safety systems and ultra-violet-protective features, into the historic home. LAS' preservation work restored the Swan House’s original interior finishes including highly ornate plaster, marble, decorative painting and carved wood to their original appearances while retaining evidence of the passage of time. Swan House was designed by renowned Atlanta architect Philip Trammell Shutze and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
