Architecture for Period and Historic Properties

 

Prior to any new work, we always consider the history of the building, however large or small, evaluating its importance and significance. This is as a building in its environment or in true historical terms.


From this, we consider what is best for the building and how it can best be designed for survival in the following years and appreciation by future generations. Every building needs a purpose and functionality - redundant and empty buildings will only fail.


If we need to redesign or remodel an existing building (or a complex of buildings) we clear our thoughts and avoid any preconceived ideas. In some cases we ignore the previous usage of a room and look outside of the box. This ensures that the finished building flows and works for the client, to suit how they wish to use it, live in it and in some instances how it can generate an income.


We believe that our role is to bring together the varying elements, making it an attractive resaleable asset and a comfortable home. We take account of client’s thoughts, design, cost implications, site capabilities, the latest ecological aspects, insulation, energy and water saving technologies, to create a home to be proud of.
