SPAB – New Design for Old Buildings Seminar
17 June - 13:30 - 17:00£60
Led by Roger Hunt, co-author of the SPAB/RIBA book New Design for Old Buildings (2017), this afternoon seminar will explore the SPAB Approach to new work in historic contexts. 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.
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.
Some of the wonderful feedback from delegates of our previous ‘New Design’ afternoon seminar (2019):
“Fantastic mixture of principles and detailed information.”
“Very enjoyable and useful course.”
