Peregrine Bryant has over thirty-five years of experience as a trusted architect of historic properties and innovative new buildings, he established Peregrine Bryant Architecture and Building Conservation in 1994 on the retirement of his former partner.

The practice has grown to a size ideally suited to offer tailored responses to projects of any scope. The close-knit team works in constant collaboration affording a range of perspectives and skills to every client. The practice has extensive experience in the conservation and repair of listed buildings as well as in the design of sensitive alterations and additions, which complement the character of the original structures. Unless buildings are able to be adapted to current times and technologies, they run the risk of falling into disrepair and disuse.

We feel that the ongoing repair and conservation of existing buildings is a very sustainable architectural model in its reduction on demolition and by taking advantage of more resilient traditional materials and structures which were designed to last much longer than the average modern building.

The use of ecological materials and energy saving technologies is a priority in all projects. Natural materials and products, which are gentler on the environment in their production, do not make use of harmful chemicals, and are recyclable are prioritised. Traditional methods and materials which have fallen into disuse often prove to be more sustainable than modern alternatives. Materials such as lime are used in almost all our projects for their low carbon footprint and breathability which is perfectly suited to protecting both buildings and the environment. Modern green technologies such as solar panels, biomass boilers, heat pumps and rainwater harvesting are incorporated whenever possible and applicable.

Earlier this year, we were one of the first to be granted Listed Building Consent to install slim sealed double glazed units to existing sashes in a substantial Grade I listed building in order to reduce the heating requirement.

As for our own carbon footprint, our office has implemented the "Cycle to Work" scheme, offering bicycles to all of our employees for commuting to work and local site meetings. Several of our employees travel almost exclusively by bicycle and the remainder by train and public transport to all but remote sites. We do have an office car, which is necessary for our more inaccessible projects, however it is a hybrid which combines a petrol engine with an electric motor resulting in minimal fuel usage and low CO2 emissions.

Within the office we have an extensive recycling scheme in place which ensures the re-use of all of our paper products, including ink cartridges, batteries and all recyclable rubbish.

In addition to our widespread knowledge and experience in historic building and conservation work, we offer expertise in a wide range of projects, including new build and contemporary detailing and materials. We enjoy the sensitive adaptation and alteration of existing and historic buildings, fitting them for new uses and for the 21st century. We are equally enthusiastic about the design of new buildings suited to their environment.

We will shortly be starting construction on a new house in central London incorporating a living wall externally which will be irrigated by water storage tank in the basement receiving surface and grey water from the house. This will be pumped to roof level with a solar powered pump. In addition there will be combined PV and solar water heating panels on part of the roof.

The practice also undertakes repairs to buildings at risk, grant aided restoration work, urban design, landscape and interior design, historic research, quinquennial reports, consultancy, feasibility studies, surveys, site inspections and project management.
