Preserving character, transforming purpose
Adaptive reuse entails reinventing existing buildings for new uses. We begin by identifying the defining characteristics of a given structure and then imagining how those features might creatively serve new purposes. We seek the best ways to respect a building’s original design when making alterations and additions. Our work honors a site’s past while supporting the present and innovating for the future. Our adaptive reuse projects transform entire streets, neighborhoods and districts, unveiling new opportunities for older spaces, breathing life into abandoned sites, and bringing renewed vitality and opportunity to communities worldwide.
