Fortunately, local authority is now extremely rigorous with conservation projects, which makes the design process even more important. One of our favorite sights is watching a badly designed 1960s extension being demolished and being replaced with an oak frame. As well as the design aspect, choosing the right materials is crucial in accommodating an extension into the original building. There is nothing worse in any form of building to have something that looks like is doesn͛t belong there.
Due to the complexity of conservation planning, we work in tandem with associates who specialize in historical projects.
