Listed buildings work by Ian Poulter

Owners of a Listed Building must understand that their property has been scheduled for special protection due to its age, architectural style, method of construction, uniqueness or a combination of all four. As such, any work which involves extending, altering or demolishing part of the building must be subject to a Listed Building Application which comprises a more detailed and sensitive consideration process in addition to the more general Planning Application. Approval should be obtained prior to undertaking any work on these buildings which obviously form part of our National Heritage.

I have worked on a significant number of Listed Buildings; some of which are dwellings, however, many have been commercially orientated which has necessitated a fine balance between preservation and modernisation.

In some instances I conform to the principle of adapting and extending these structures sympathetically in order that it is extremely difficult to see the new work, or at least presenting the image of organic evolution over a significant period of time. In other cases, I prefer to respectfully adapt internally and externally in a manner which confidently expresses the current time and lifestyle requirements. This, of course, is sometimes impracticable in Conservation Areas.
