Historic Preservation

One of our primary focuses is on the preservation of historic buildings. We do more than simply restore old buildings or rehabilitate them for new uses; historic preservation is a philosophy derived from years of experience about how to respect the architectural integrity of historic buildings. Through an architectural historian lens, we look at history in different ways and ask different questions of the past, teaching us new things about our history and culture. We transmit our understanding of the past to future generations through our historic preservation activities.

We understand the methods of analysis of cultural heritage and the identification of historic fabric and character-defining features o determine a building’s significance and value.
