Conservation - Historic & Listed Buildings
Axis Architecture feels passionately about working in a considerate way with historic and listed buildings. We have a great deal of experience in converting, restoring and extending historic and listed buildings. These types of project require a specific set of skills which Axis prides itself on having refined over the past 25 years.
Chris Cook has been the parish architect for Farlington Parish and is currently the Church Architect for All Saint’s Church in Portsea. We can carry out condition inspections and reports of historic buildings, determine what building work is needed, and help guide the client through the process of getting Planning Permission, Listed Building Consent, and Building Regulation approval.
Our use of 3D modelling software enables us to help clients visualise the proposed works, and to help in the construction phase of projects. For example, urgent renovation works to a church spire was modelled in 3D on the computer to show which particular pieces of timber needed to be replaced.
Our knowledge in this area is highlighted by Chris Cook’s registration with the RIBA Conservation Register. The RIBA Conservation Register is a directory of RIBA Chartered Practices that recognises architects that have the required experience, expertise and qualifications to work on historic and listed buildings.
Here are a few projects we are proud to have been involved with:
Warwick Lane in Wickham – This involved the conversion of the old Warwick’s Hardware store into a shopping arcade.
Church of the Resurrection, Farlington – A replacement community hall designed to sit respectfully adjacent to the existing church.
Quinquennial Church Inspections – Axis Architecture have overseen many restoration and conservation projects resulting from our church inspections.
