Narrative is a key component of architecture that is often overlooked. Regardless of age, every building, structure and landscape has a story to tell. Levitate view its conservation and historic building expertise as a valued specialism and places its principles and processes at the heart of everything that it does.
Applying a forensic approach to every project, research and understanding bring balance and coherence to each decision that we take; be that on the conservation and repair of 500 year old ruins, the reinstatement and celebration of layers of history in historically significant buildings, or in the relationship between the natural and manmade heritage in sensitive landscape settings. This attitude to architectural practice strengthens our ability to work and engage with a wide range of stakeholders and collaborators, allows us to celebrate the broadest notions of culture and taste, and continues to develop the diversity of expertise within our team, which includes award winning designers, conservation architects, writers and curators.
