Conservation architecture is about much more than protecting and prolonging the life of older buildings. It is about providing informed advice and enabling sustainable care to create characterful and inspirational places.
LHC has extensive experience in obtaining listed building consents on behalf of our clients, and in bringing to each project a well informed understanding of what it is that makes the building special and how that significance can be enhanced to deliver locally distinctive places.
What we offer
We see conservation as a process of understanding and managing change. We bring our design skills, creativity and experience to each project in order to come up with solutions that function in the building’s long term interest. New interventions are sympathetically designed to respect the history and context of the site whilst adding delight and interest. We also have significant experience of designing within historically sensitive sites including conservation areas, National Parks, listed parklands and AONBs.
Our conservation services include:
- Applications for Listed Building Consent
- Conservation Area Character Appraisals
- Historic Building Recording
- Conservation Management Plans
