Interior Design For Historic Buildings
Jeff and Susie are joined by Jane Landino and Helena Lowry from Taylor Howes to discuss interior design for historic buildings.
In the UK, we are blessed with a huge stock of incredible old buildings. In fact, around 30% of all our homes were constructed before the year 1910. Many of these properties are quite rightly protected by strict laws designed to preserve their historic features and, at the same time, maintain our lovely streetscapes.
But wonderful as these buildings are, they were designed for the way people in previous generations lived and worked, which is a far cry from the way we live and work today. Plus, many of them are fragile and in need of repair.
Is it possible to sensitively re-purpose these outmoded historic structures and make them relevant for modern use, and what is the role of the interior designer as protector and custodian of our national heritage?
This episode is recorded at Taylor Howes in Knightsbridge.
