Historic + Adaptive Reuse

Historic buildings provide numerous opportunities for both preserving the past and meeting the needs of today's society.

Some of our most innovative designs have been for historic buildings, as many of these projects require both some element of preservation along with the creation of a new use that will complement the existing space and the needs of the client and community.

Transforming History

Wiencek + Associates has transformed dilapidated historic public school buildings and mansions into independent senior residential communities. We also have modernized historic multifamily housing developments by providing full unit upgrades while also preserving and enhancing the exterior elements that acknowledge the historic nature of the site. In all of these projects, Wiencek + Associates uses creative design strategies both to respect the history of these aging buildings and to revitalize, reprogram, and protect them for use by present and future generations.
