Honoring Historic Buildings & Places
At the base of all great urban places is not only a sense of the future but most importantly the past. As new intentions emerge, a dynamic balance must be created between what was previously intended and what must now be accomplished. A profound understanding of what has been is essential to both the preservation of valued work and to the creation of new buildings or the accommodation of new activities. In urban terms there can be no real difference between restoration and new construction.
Since both are based on an understanding of places and buildings in a historical and technical sense, they are absolutely linked. Our work in the area of adaptive reuse is centered on the belief that the rehabilitation and restoration of existing buildings is fundamental to the realization of sustaining of a meaningful city. A city’s extraordinary buildings, public halls, chamber, courts and gardens embody a past which can be preserved and respected as they are adapted to meet new demands.
