Professor Jeffery S. Poss, FAIA was part of a team that received a Heritage Award from the Preservation and Conservation Association (PACA) of Champaign County, for the restoration and improvement of the residence at 609 West Delaware, Urbana.

Poss was the Architectural Consultant for the transformation of the 1979 modernist structure designed by Professor Jack Sherman Baker, FAIA for his client Gertrude Robinson.

The house has been empty for several years before current owner Chris Knight purchased the house in 2015. Extensive repairs were needed inside and outside. In addition, the owner wanted to improve on several budget-compromised details of the original project, as well as introduce innovative new details.
