Dealing with heritage issues in the design of a new home or renovation can be challenging, but equally the results can be inspiring. The best heritage projects don't simply copy the styles of yesteryear (this isn't a period drama), they take inspiration from the original home to create something modern yet sympathetic and complimentary to the heritage home.
