Contemporary Interventions

The design of a bespoke contemporary addition can elevate and transform your building’s usefulness and your quality of life, whilst enhancing and preserving your heritage asset for future generations.


E2 have a long tradition of working with historic buildings. Sam Cooper our director grew up restoring period and listed houses with his architect father. He has an innate understanding of the design, technology and materials used in historic building. From this he is able to design and specify the right interventions and materials to make improvements that are appropriate and sympathetic whilst being bold and contemporary.


Heritage buildings represent a large proportion of our built environment, especially in London, be they listed or in conservation areas or Green Belt. Being the custodian-owner of a heritage building often presents challenges.


Each heritage building is unique. These buildings are by their nature implicitly of a different era, and as a result can restrict 21st century lifestyles.


Perhaps the biggest obstacle to actualising any change to a heritage building is achieving a successful planning consent. The planners and conservation officers will want to see proper analysis of the buildings history and its significance is carried out and that the highest quality design and specification of any alterations, additions or new buildings addresses this, fully demonstrating that the heritage asset is preserved and enhanced.
