Additions and Remodels are great. Not only are we able to make a building new with an adaptive reuse which extends a building life but we also treat these as a great way to learn. During the programing phase of these projects there are investigations into the past which offer incites which are not readily found elsewhere. Good and Bad installations can be analyzed for future reference. It always a joy to begin from scratch with a site and a blank piece of paper when designing but I find as much joy (maybe more) in taking an older outdated structure along with a clients program to adapt a structure to a better solution.
