2012 PRESERVATION AWARD WINNERS
At the May 17 Annual Meeting . . .
CPS presented the 2012 Annual Preservation
Award in the Residential category to Carol and David Hoffman, current owners of the Charles E. Firestone Home. Stark County's notable architect, Charles E. Firestone, designed and built in 1959 this Wright Usonian style
house as his personal home on West Dale Road NW. In Frank Lloyd Wright
fashion, the house is situated to fit into the existing natural
environment. A large north-facing cathedral window wall maximizes light
and brings natural beauty into the great room. The home has special
meaning to Mr. Hoffman, who over his lifetime has attended
elementary and high school, has been employed, and now lives in
Firestone designed structures.
Winning the 2012 Adapted Reuse category
is Dr. Albert Domingo for re-purposing the former Hastings U.S. Army Reserve Center on Parkway Street NW.
Built in 1957 and named for Pfc Joe Hastings of Magnolia, a WWII
posthumous Medal of Honor recipient, the Center closed in 2007. Dr.
Domingo envisioned the property as an opportunity to expand his
practice, diversify associated services, and offer high quality care to
all area women and families close to both Canton hospitals and SARTA
service. Randy Parsons, with Mann Architects of Akron,
served as project manager. The re-design was thoughtfully driven by the
needs and wishes of both patients and employees, while improving the
site's appearance in its neighborhood.
