We’ve realised successful projects in conservation areas, listed buildings, and even World Heritage Sites
Heritage & Conservation
Smart planning for commercial gain
Historic buildings demand a strong vision – it’s what drives our clients in the first place. However, these incredible sites also demand that we prepare for the unexpected. From excavation discoveries to fire risks, our experienced team adapts to keep the project on schedule and on budget – without losing sight of your goals.
The India Buildings in Edinburgh serve as a perfect example: three listed buildings in a UNESCO World Heritage site, all linked by a spectacular new build. The planning process was complex and fraught with sensitivities, but our visionary design and collaborative approach secured the permissions. Perhaps most importantly, we brought these at-risk buildings back to life in spectacular fashion.
We unlock the potential of historic spaces, often with a simple but inspired solution that can make the site commercially successful once again. Ultimately, we find the right approach to bring your vision to life.
