Conservation

At the core of our practice is a deep interest in the history of buildings and the way they are put together. Attention is given to understanding the historic character and architectural originality of a building. We bring a particular insight and approach to heritage projects looking to revive the spirit of a building whilst protecting what is historically important.

We are sensitive to all phases of the development of a building and the accumulated character they bring. Our skill is to look through the many layers to understand the intrinsic character that lays beneath. With this understanding we enable historic and protected buildings to be fit for the demands made by today’s regulations and lifestyles. This is coupled with our experience of design, sustainability, and health and wellbeing.

The same care and attention is brought to all our heritage projects regardless of the degree of statutory protection. Our interest ensures that we continue to build on our skills and knowledge, keeping up-to-date with legislation requirements and best practice. We assess equally traditional and modern techniques for their appropriateness and to ensure the best outcomes we work with experienced craftspersons and specialist consultants.
