Built heritage describes who we are and the experiences we have had in the past. It is important to reflect on where we came from and understanding those events helps us to know exactly who we are today.
It can excite our imagination about our past and help us create a sense of belonging for a community.
Heritage Buildings offer a fantastic combination of challenge and privilege to be in touch with history.
Many of our team members just love working with heritage buildings solving unusual challenges modern buildings won’t have.
SMC Design Studio is fortunate to have many interesting projects right at our doorstep in Christchurch.
Built heritage can bring people together, and give them pride and confidence in their local area with the knowledge that they aren’t alone in what they offer the community in terms of historical significance or cultural significance.
That means our designs are beautiful and practical at the same time.
Plus we save you time by being New Zealand Building Code compliant and you get consent sooner.
