Our Services Include:
Our Architecture Studio provides design for existing buildings and new structures. We work as architects of record and consulting preservation architects, always inspired by context. Our design philosophy embraces the benefits of imagining change: compatible change, balancing stewardship, flexibility, and long-term durability for new designs and historic rehabilitations alike.
- PLANNING & RESEARCH
Our Cultural Resources and Planning Studio analyzes an extraordinary mixture of properties. Our historians, architectural historians, and preservation planners are able to determine whether a property is historically significant and what makes it so. Following the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and relevant Guidelines, our staff makes determinations of significance, identifies character-defining features, and develops recommendations informed by the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties or Treatment of Cultural Landscapes directives. Every day we conduct historic research, learning more about buildings, sites, and structures across the country. We tap into many archives for text, images, and drawings about a property and compile that data into easy-to-read, actionable reports.
- PRESERVATION TECHNOLOGY
The Preservation Technology Studio understands the opportunities presented by the continuing use of existing and historic buildings. By blending good design, new technology, and sustainable practices, we extend the service-life of these structures and their character-defining components. We understand historic building materials and their changing uses over time and respond to our projects quickly with sound evaluations and repair decisions.
Page & Turnbull is collectively able to balance historic character with adaptive reuse, objective historic evaluation with community involvement, and complex design solutions with technical understanding of historic materials and their conservation. Our projects require experience with local, state, and federal review requirements, a working knowledge of historic building codes, and a familiarity of the means and methods of construction.
