Contemporary design that is unique and striking, while delivering a sense of timelessness is a difficult balance to strike. So often, contemporary residential architects prospective homeowners search endlessly for a new way to represent their contribution to the community they intend to become a part of. Looking forward can inspire and excite, however, harnessing the power of the past is often the key to unlocking a new way of representing old ideas in a fresh way.

The Best Heritage Architects in Melbourne

At BY Projects Architecture, we are the best heritage architects in Melbourne and have earned our sterling reputation over three decades and counting. We are a forward-thinking team that loves the challenge of creating something new while utilising something familiar that already exists. We believe that it is essential to determine what our clients want up-front so that we can focus our designs and the ways that we think about and approach your building. Ultimately, we want to exceed your expectations and do this through proactive, positive and fun collaboration.

Our personalised service is all about good design combined with sustainability. As such, heritage projects are particularly exciting, since they enable the reuse of old structures and reduce the energy that is required to deliver new buildings. We can achieve carbon zero for you and have the resources and connection necessary to secure the best materials for this purpose and ensure that your construction is run sustainably.

How Heritage Architects Secure Your Future by Innovating Around the Past

When it comes to buildings that have a cultural significance it is important to approach the work with a sense of respect. Any heritage structure that is eyed for development has the potential to become a cornerstone and key identifier of the community that it is a part of.

As heritage architects in Melbourne, we have seen the value that the transformation of an older structure can have with regards to the development of the community around it. Planners recognise the fact that where appropriately designed and completed, these buildings add immense cultural and commercial value to an area. They often become a central feature around which more modern structures are built, but from whom these new developments find their collective aesthetic.

The restoration or renovation of old structures is a great way to reduce environmental issues that are so often associated with the outward growth and sprawl of a city. Used appropriately, they can accommodate families and reduce the need for commuting long distances, which of course cuts down on emissions.

With regards to the construction element involved, the amount of work required for renovation architect to do is typically a lot lower than in new developments. A reduction in supplies, transportation of equipment and workers, procuring raw materials and consuming energy all contribute positively to the green agenda and promote healthier environments.
