What does a conservation architect do?

A conservation architect seeks to preserve and remodel historical buildings. The end goal is to maintain or restore the building’s aesthetic so that it is true to its original form.

Why is architectural conservation important?

Architectural conservation helps to define a location’s identity and sense of place. Many of us take historic buildings for granted, but if we lose them, they would be sorely missed and change the nature of a location.

What is a heritage architect?

A heritage architect can also be known as a conservation architect. Heritage buildings are often linked with culture and arts within a community and a heritage architect is responsible for maintaining or restoring these buildings to their original form, whilst making them useful for our modern way of life.
