PTW Architects is a well-established architectural and urban design practice with wide experience in conservation and heritage architecture. This includes the conservation and adaptive reuse of buildings and places for contemporary use and the preparation of heritage reports.
PTW’s experience demonstrates an understanding of the conservation of heritage places in terms of:
the importance of appropriate uses, both continuing and new;
the careful integration of contemporary technologies in an environmentally sustainable way;
the careful assessment of appropriate materials and construction techniques;
the importance of consultation with users, peers, specialists, and authorities; and
the design skills required to integrate the above factors into a harmonious whole.
The innovative and sensitive adaptation of heritage fabric for new socially, culturally and economically useful purposes is an important part of PTW’s work.
