With backgrounds in conservation, Peregrine and Paul are both familiar with the constraints and opportunities presented when working with historic and listed buildings. The practice has been fortunate to work on many listed buildings. Such buildings require careful consideration throughout the project, from negotiating the planning system to careful specification of materials to conserve the existing fabric while making the building fit for future use.


Peregrine Mears Architects also have extensive experience of designing and delivering projects in sensitive rural and urban sites, including Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, National Parks, Sites of Special Scientific Interest and Conservation Areas. Thorough research of the site and an understanding of relevant national and local planning policy underpin the development of such projects.
