Cultural, Conservation & Listed Buildings Architects
A nation’s architectural heritage is an important part of its identity so cultural projects are especially important to us. We want to create culturally sensitive buildings that engage with the public and provide long-term solutions for our clients.
We are regularly commissioned to carry out detailed conservation, restoration and refurbishment projects, involving listed buildings of all categories ( I, II & II* ) and ancient monuments in Britain and Ireland. Listed buildings are buildings that have been placed on a statutory list maintained by Historic England, and are deemed to have special architectural or historic interest.
Our method of heritage analysis and reporting has been recognised as ‘exemplary‘ by many Local Authorities, with Bradford Metropolitan District Council using our Heritage Statement for Heathcote ( Grade I Sir Edwin Lutyens house, restoration and conversion, Ilkley ) as an exemplar document for presentation to other Architects and Developers.
Understanding the importance of the architectural and social historic elements of a building is key to developing proposals that can be convincingly articulated to the Conservation Officer. We have specialist listed and historic building expertise that can help clients to understand the important aspects of their buildings, which allows clients to make informed decisions about proposals.
Throughout the project, Halliday Clark and his colleagues have given us sound advice and proposals, and have interpreted our needs and ambitions most successfully. They have brought imagination to what can be done, and have been sensitive to our comments. They have also respected our limitations of finance, the limitations of Diocesan Faculties, and the limitations of having two listed buildings on the site of a Roman Fort. And in spite of those limitations, we are getting a creative and flexible outcome for worship and a wide range of community activity. - All Saints Church
