multi-family housing

From affordable to market-rate, student to senior, artist to veteran, much of our portfolio of work has been multi-family housing. Whether the scope is preserving existing housing or adaptive use of old schools or offices into creative living solutions, we successfully consult on design issues such as interior alterations and window replacements.


Hotel & hospitality

Hotel rehabilitations, like housing, require special interior design considerations for creating the required number of units and sensitively restored public spaces. Our experts have a wealth of knowledge regarding these common issues, in particular the treatment of ornamental materials and compliance solutions.

Over the last decade, large industrial complexes have been successfully converted to house research and tech incubators. Our team has managed the historic tax credit application process for some of the largest of these programs around the country and consulted on design issues that arise from the specific needs of these types of facilities.


arts & entertainment

Historic buildings are important for use as community spaces. Theaters and event spaces are often loudly championed by their communities. We are well-versed in the needs related to these types of rehabilitations, including adaptive use design considerations, interior and exterior historic material treatments, and code compliance solutions.

Office & Retail

From small town stores to metropolitan skyscrapers, we have consulted on offices and retail spaces of all sizes. We are able to address issues of public and private space design requirements, prioritizing the most important components for review and certification. We are also essential in crafting tenant build-out requirements for continued compliance that protects the project’s historic tax credits.


Mixed Use

Many of our projects have multiple uses, multiple phases, and even multiple owners. Our extensive experiences with many different types of rehabilitations means that we are able to anticipate pitfalls and solutions for projects of all shapes and sizes.
