SPAB – New Design for Old Buildings in Wales, Online Seminar: smaller projects – domestic and commercial
28 April - 13:00 - 17:30£45
Led by Roger Hunt, co-author of the SPAB/RIBA book New Design for Old Buildings (2017), this online afternoon seminar will explore the SPAB Approach to new work in historic contexts, with particular reference to Wales. Our aim is to provide an introduction to integrating alterations or additions sensitively and sustainably, whilst protecting historic character and fabric. We will also explore the ‘whole building’ approach to intervention and refurbishment, with reference to SPAB principles and case studies of smaller scale domestic and commercial projects from expert guest speakers. The course includes an introduction to the legal framework for making changes to historic and listed buildings in Wales, but the principles explored are widely applicable.
This is an introductory / intermediate level half-day course, suitable for building owners, students, professionals / CPD and general interest. Certificates of attendance will be available on request.
