Conservation -

Tailor made work to listed properties

These properties are often protected, or listed, or located in sensitive conservation areas with complex planning control restrictions.

A quick note about what we do: we love old buildings. We are conservation architects and have extensive experience with work to period homes, restorations and extensions of listed properties. These buildings are often protected or located on sensitive sites with complex planning control restrictions. Often there is a need to adapt the property for today’s needs.

We like to say that we have no style. Every project you see on our site is the result of listening to our clients, understanding their needs and finding the solution that engages and fulfils those needs.

We have RIAI conservation accreditation grade I and deliver a full range of service from design, to project management, through to handover. In short, we help clients to realise their dream home while removing the time, worry and stress that can be involved in a build.

What Our Clients Say...

We came to Max with clear thoughts on what we did not want but not much else in terms of guidance. He took a challenging brief in relation to creating a larger living space in a Victorian house with all of the attendant limitations, and came up with a solution that delighted us - creative, appropriate to the context and implementable. The solution really demonstrated that he really listened to us, understood our needs and applied the experience that he has in working with older houses. I would certainly work with him again.
