Sensitively Adapting Period Houses to Contemporary Life by David Averill

The purpose of the talk is to look at how to sensitively adapt period houses looking at approaches which respects the patina and character of these dwellings. It will look at how to work with the planning guidelines and building regulations. It will look at particular projects and how a sensitive approach can transform a house without losing its particular quality and interest.

David Averill FRIAI is a Conservation Architect (Grade 2) who has worked with Sheehan Barry Architects since 1986 and has worked on a number of period houses and in particular with domestic clients on both Protected and non-Protected houses. The work has encompassed guiding the clients through the process from survey, design and the planning process through to construction, decoration, fitting out and furnishing to handover.
