Kessler Theater, homeowners win preservation awards

Preservation Dallas has announced its 2011 Preservation Achievement Award winners, and a couple of Oak Cliff structures are included.

The Kessler Theater won for rehabilitation/adaptive use of a commercial, institutional, or mixed-use property.  Edwin Cabaniss bought the old theater, renovated it and opened it last year as a live music venue, gallery space, dance and music studio, bar and restaurant.

Richard Davis of Oak Cliff was the architect on the project.

The home at 203 N. Willomet Ave. won for rehabilitation or adaptive use of a residential historic property. Owners are Raymond L. Switzer and Michael K. Justus.
