We are a medium sized practice which includes architects, traditional and CAD draughtsmen, heritage planners and advisors and support staff. We also design new buildings in historic contexts. Lucas Stapleton Johnson are architects and heritage advisors for heritage-listed buildings and other places of historical and architectural note. These can range from small houses and gardens to major public building complexes. Our approach begins with understanding the nature and history of the place. We design, document for construction, and arrange building and landscape work on behalf of our clients, most often adaptations and additions. We also provide advice and write reports on appropriate actions for significant places, e.g. conservation management plans and heritage impact statements. We work independently as well as in collaboration with other design firms and consultants for major projects.
