Conservation

Respecting and improving our built heritage

We understand the role of historic buildings in placemaking and forming the cornerstones of our towns and cities. There is much to enjoy, protect and conserve. Historic buildings face their own set of challenges, from access constraints, adaptive re-use and decay. As architects and interior designers, we can envisage new uses for historic buildings, create sensitive interventions and innovative solutions to these issues. We have experience of working on listed buildings and understand the complexity, care and consultation required to achieve exciting developments in these environments. DKA believe that contemporary designs can exist alongside historic elements and bring out the best in each other. You can download our latest Conservation capability statement here.
