Our Historical practice is experienced in the restoration and adaptation of heritage structures. We are well-versed in the technologies, best practices, design considerations and community sensitivities associated with historical buildings and heritage neighbourhoods, and we take pride in being able to bring these buildings back to vital use.
Just as the buildings we design today are our ‘time capsules’ to future generations, so the buildings and streetscapes we have inherited from our ancestors are reflections of their times and achievements. Historic structures are often cherished parts of the fabric of their communities but face serious challenges of decay and obsolescence. Restoring, conserving or adapting them for new uses demand particular historical and technical knowledge to ensure the survival of this legacy.
