HISTORIC BUILDINGS PRESENT MANY COMPLEXITIES. WE RESPECT THE SENSITIVITIES INVOLVED BUT STILL DELIVER INNOVATIVE AND FAR-REACHING PROJECTS. Tim Leach, architect director
Our heritage teams have undertaken the complex refurbishment of internationally renowned theatres, concert halls, museums and other cultural institutions.
We have succeeded in preserving and enhancing their character whilst discreetly adapting them, functionally and technically, to make them truly fit for purpose in the 21st century.
Specialist skills include conservation, innovative use of sustainable materials, intimate understanding of site significance and building history and creative-led design philosophy. We are also able to benefit our clients with our expertise in working collaboratively with statutory authorities to ease projects through the necessary legislative phases.
