Design Challenges / Opportunities

When working with listed buildings we are faced with challenges and opportunities. These were taken and overcome by working closely with the client to establish how their requirements could be met within these constraints.

A series of interventions were introduced to reinforce the client’s brand identity and produce an architectural layout that preserves the historic fabric whilst improving both space and function.
