Adaptive Reuse | Preservation
We consider it imperative to document the past through our buildings and vital to rescue and preserve the historic fabric of our cities and towns. It is our passion to transform distinguished, but tired, buildings of the past into vibrant new structures with efficient contemporary uses. In our judgment, it is smart to protect the historic buildings in our communities — not only because they are beautiful to look at, but also they still possess utility and they serve to give our communities a sense of themselves and their place in history. Adaptive reuse, renovation and historic preservation represent a core expertise of LDA architects. We have been recognized by many prominent organizations that have selected our firm to lead innovative assignments in the field. We attempt to maximize retention of the often-remarkable interior and exterior features significant to each structure’s historic, architectural, and cultural value while adding new construction that complements the original historic character.
