Heritage architecture projects require much collaboration with preservation and conservation partners. Highly familiar with the complexities and considerations for the planning and execution, Black Box Architects have completed many sensitive and complex heritage projects across the country.
First stage of dealing with old buildings and in particular, barns, as this photo shows, is to have them fully cleared and assessed. This then gives us the opportunity to look at what we can do and how to keep anything of significance. The key with older buildings is often to allow them to express their age alongside any new work and to strike a balance between. Here, all the bricked up slot windows will be reopened to flood the barn with light.
