ICE Arch Ltd seeks to incorporate insulation and renewable energy sources into its designs, for the benefit of the client and the environment generally.


Do you live in a conservation area or in a listed building, or in a Georgian, Victorian or Edwardian terraced house, and do you want to restore or improve it?  If so, you should choose an architect who has expertise in conservation.

According to your goals and the building’s context, the scheme might be primarily ‘preservation’, in that usage, regional characteristics, materials and methods are retained. On the other hand, the historic building might be adapted for new use, upgraded or modernised.

The following photos show properties where development needs the expertise of a conservation-skilled architect. 

Why ICE Arch Ltd for your Conservation Project?

ICE Arch Ltd’s principal architect – Alison Taylor-Stokes – is RIBA-trained in Conservation Architecture.  This means that she is conversant with the philosophy and principles of conservation, and familiar with relevant legislation, policies and guidance.

She well-understands the causes and consequences of defects and decay.  She has the skills to undertake surveys and investigations, and to apply appropriate techniques to ameliorate and stabilise existing structures.  This is likely to involve conservation and repair of traditional materials including stone, brickwork, timber and lime products and non-traditional materials including concrete.

At the same time, she will devise a scheme that improves the building’s functionality and comfort, while building-in state-of-the-art services and energy performance.
