John Trotter is a registered Conservation Architect. The RIBA Conservation Register enables those looking to commission work on heritage buildings to find architects with the specific skills and experience they require, encompassing all aspects of historic building conservation, repair and maintenance.
Listed buildings require the greatest amount of attention and care. Working within the planning constraints can be the most difficult and rewarding.
Understanding the process and that the design most likely to succeed will have the smallest impact on the original building is essential in obtaining the best results.
Buildings are listed for a reason and clients should always be mindful that they might not get what they initially want. Sometimes the occupants have to adapt to the building more than the building gets adapted to the proposed uses.
Flexibility in the design process is essential. We strive to achieve the best results for both Client and Building.
