Localization

Our conservational approach weaves a tangible architectural narrative. By accentuating time-honoured detailing, we wish to convey depth and reinforce dignity in the built fabric.

Key ambitions in the design process have been to:

- Repair the urban fabric through strengthening the building’s relationship to existing context.
- Enhance architectural aesthetics by adding a richness in form and façade features.
- Convey history by expressing new additions as fragments of a greater narrative.
