Architectural Design Services
 

W | A Associates performed an investigation, identifying water damage, the condition of the building envelopes, structural evaluation, and recommendations for repairs.  W/A also provided architectural consulting services including re-configuration of the building plan layout, while preserving and performing restoration of historical elements of this 16th Century building. 

First Courtyard                                                             Second Courtyard

The new layout created three  building groups separated by two courtyards, and a roof terrace.  This layout affords more light and provides privacy while maintaining connection between each space function.
