Mary Harding Sadler


Mimi thrives on teamwork. Her work as an historic preservation consultant garners regular praise from her clients. Among her favorite projects was working for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation on the recently completed renovations to the Williamsburg Lodge, and the nearby conversion of the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum into a spa.

Mimi was graduated cum laude from Williams College with a major in art history, and received a master’s degree in architecture from the University of Virginia. She gained her early experience working as senior architect for the Virginia Department of Historic Resources, and as a staff architect for Richmond architectural firms who were comfortable blending historic rehabilitation with modern design.

Her practice has focused on adaptively reusing historic buildings with an emphasis on preserving each property’s unique sense of place. As an historical architect she helps public and private property owners identify significant features of their historic properties and generate thoughtful strategies for their development. Mimi is a licensed architect in the state of Virginia.
