Retrofitting one building’s original design into something that is of more use today is an essential part of sustainable design.  Many companies are or have implemented preserving practices within their company and are very capable of executing beautiful “new-to-you” designs.

One architectural firm that is steadily renovating old buildings and coming up with new spaces while retaining their emphasis on sustainable design is Nicolas Tye Architects.

They discuss their design philosophy by stating,

“We are architects and designers interested in creating innovative, high quality and healthy environments for all people. Our skills in design, project organization, client confidence in our work and deliverability is what we attain for our clients. The world around us is changing immeasurably and key to us is architecture which follows no trends or fashions but follows the real agenda of providing invigorating healthy environments for all to use.”

Their studio is located near London and it is one of the buildings that has been modified by the firm to become a new space. Originally a barn, the 2200 square feet long rectangle now is a contemporary and sleek designed glass and wood work space for Nicolas Tye Architects’ employees’ offices entitled “The Long Barn Studio.”
