Conservation

Working in a heritage setting, whether that is in a conservation area or a listed building, presents a range of additional considerations over and above the normal project.

Waterland Associates’ very first two projects in 1997 were the conversion of a listed mill to become housing and a new house in a conservation area. We have been successfully working on all forms of conservation project ever since.

Our approach to conservation is a practical one. We believe that in order to stay viable buildings in a conservation setting need to respond to the requirements of modern life.

Conservation Areas

Listed Buildings

Heritage Architecture

We understand that historical fabric and detail needs to be protected for posterity. But we believe conservation is primarily about conserving a quality of design and workmanship, not simply slavishly copying a historical style.

Working closely with clients and appropriate expert specialists (architectural historians, specialist contractors and suppliers) we will ensure that your conservation project both serves your needs and respects the quality and character of the original building or conservation setting.
