The practice’s expertise in working with historic buildings means that we are very able to help individuals adapt properties to suit their particular requirements and negotiate the rigorous demands of the listed building legislation. Projects may involve extensions, or interventions in contemporary or traditional character, to suit the client and the context.

We understand the complex issues associated with sustainability, historic fabric and environmental conditions and take care to ensure that appropriate, cost effective, low risk measures for improvement are adopted. In our work on private homes we are especially conscious of the need to incorporate measures that improve access for maintenance and cyclical repairs.
