Our comprehensive understanding of historic building types helps to provide clear and logical guidance on the restoration and extension of historic buildings.
ADAM Architecture has a wealth of expertise in historic buildings and traditional design. This makes us ideally suited to carrying out sympathetic alterations to listed buildings and other historic structures.
We do not perceive listing to be a barrier to great design. With our experience in traditional architecture, we are ideally placed to complement the original historic fabric with traditional designs and materials, while improving both sustainability and energy performance, and the suitability of buildings for modern use and enjoyment. We believe that new work should be carried out in a traditional form to complement the original design.
We have an experienced in-house historical researcher, Dr Helen Lawrence-Beaton, and a dedicated historic buildings team. The ADAM Architecture directors are actively involved in the running of several heritage bodies and committees, and regularly comment on emerging local and national heritage policy.
