Highlighted Projects:  Restoration Design

Click on a project title below for more information.

Restoration Design projects range from single trade repairs such as masonry repointing to full restoration, from the roof to the foundation, and sometimes out into the landscape. 

 

The National Park Service defines restoration as, the act or process of accurately depicting the form, features and character of a property as it appeared at a particular period of time.  If a site has been modified over time in a way that diminishes or obscures its historic character, restoration design projects may include historical research to determine a restoration period and appropriate project approach.
