Historic & Adaptive Reuse
GuernseyTingle advocates for the restoration and preservation of historic structures. We believe that classic architecture is like a time machine, drawing us into the past and providing an area with a noble landmark.
When approaching a historic project our first goal is to find out what makes the building notable. We dig up archival photographs, drawings and records to look back and discover what has made the structure historically and architecturally significant.
From there, we work with the owner to develop a plan to modernize the building for the 21st Century while maintaining its distinctive, historic features. Whether the project requires restoration or reconstruction, we make a complex assessment of everything from the roof to the foundation to create a better understanding of the property.
We also have experience with the complex approval process sometimes required for historic structures and can help guide the project through completion so that it can be used and loved by future generations.
