Any community is made up of both the past and the present. Even new developments can differentiate their aesthetic by embracing what was there before them and incorporating this into the design during the planning stages. Community pride and identity come from a connection with the past and how those living and working there engage with it daily.Read More

As the leading sustainable architect in Melbourne, we are primarily focused on sustainability and helping our clients to achieve their dream homes, buildings and developments through smart, efficient solutions. As heritage residential architects, we appreciate the sustainable factor that is built-in to restoring old buildings. Less construction is required, fewer raw materials or manufactured products need to be fabricated and the difference in energy between restoration or renovation or redevelopment, compared to a new build is huge.
While the physical aspects of the building in question are key to achieving a sustainable build, it’s worth thinking about the knock-on effect that choosing to redevelop an old, historic building can have. There are so many different possibilities that old structures can be used for, e.g. apartment buildings, hotels etc. Using the structures that we have limits the urban sprawl, which consequently means that there are fewer commutes made to and from the city. Again, good news for the environment and a great time-saver for those concerned.Read Less
The historical significance of a building is very important to take into consideration when planning a development. Retaining it and filling it with new life can create a sense of community pride and appreciation for the connection to the past. Identity and a sense of place are crucial elements in building communities and through great designs, complementary structures developed around them can demonstrate the harmony between the past and present.
The fact is that there are large financial savings to be made by undertaking a heritage project. But, more importantly, through smart collaboration, those responsible for the work can achieve a finished design that transforms old structures and secures their place and significance in the story of the city.
