Building restoration is the action or process of accurately revealing, recovering or representing the state of a historic building, as it appeared at a particular period in its history, while protecting its heritage value. At Mayta + Sebastian Architecture It is our standard to conduct careful reviews of building records and physical conditions to determine historic and/or significant features to be restored. We are familiar with the challenges associated with restoring Historic and Landmark buildings according to current applicable building codes and regulations. We work closely with preservationists assigned by the NYC Landmark Preservation Commission (LPC) in order to ensure compliance with related codes, maintenance of historical context, as well as expedite permits needed for construction. At Mayta + Sebastian Architect we know that equally as important as restoration of a building, is its ongoing maintenance to prevent future issues. Upon completion of our projects, owners are provided with a maintenance plan to assist in planning any future work and keep their buildings functioning as optimally as possible.
