At Architectura SA we enjoy working with historical buildings and are passionate when it comes to restoring old jewels and bringing them back to their original splendor. The firm has experience with unique rehabilitations projects that create new functions and uses for old buildings through bringing new life to existing spaces while maintaining its original historic character.
Architectura SA has a history as part of the Texas Historical Commission’s Texas Historic Courthouse Preservation Program (THCPP) which involves the preservation and restoration of Texas County Courthouses that are State Antiquities Landmarks listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Our design team prides itself on finding innovative, bold ideas to revitalize and improve unique historical properties through adaptive-use, building additions, restorations, and new construction projects that require sensitivity to the surrounding site context. Through our efforts to achieve an appropriate design, our projects will augment the existing built environment to create a distinguishable design that doesn’t detract from the historic appeal of the historic district or building. With specialized services that include the preliminary investigation of the historic structure during the early design stages, grant submissions, federal/state tax credit applications, coordinating with design review committees and staff, to finalizing the restoration/rehabilitation of the building – we will be the single point of contact in ensuring proper design, construction techniques, and compliance with the Secretary of Interior’s Standards and applicable Design Guidelines.
Regardless of the type of historical project at hand, the design team at Architectura SA will work with the project goals/timeframe and incorporate pertinent national, state, and local financial programs that may alleviate the financial burdens typical of historical projects. It is our ultimate goal to ensure that these historical significant treasures are given greater longevity and new life as contributing structures that will enhance our built environment while maintaining the cultural identity of the community.
