Heritage Chief Architect: Pierre-Yves Caillault
Heritage Architect: Nathalie Scipioni
We have international expertise in peeling back the layers of heritage projects, working out where to preserve, where to enhance and how to bring a building into the present without losing its past.
Pictured above is the UNESCO World Heritage Site (1983) of Place Stanislas in Nancy, France, which is frequented by pedestrians. Nathalie was responsible for the restoration of balustrades and sculptures on the top of buildings; restoration of the exterior rendering (plastering) and carpentry; restoration of 18th-century gates and lanterns. You can read more about this restoration here.

First, we carefully study the building, its layers of history and back to why it was originally built. We work closely, for instance, with to local historical associations, which often have collections of original images and stories.
Most heritage buildings have had multiple chapters, so we must decide which parts of your building’s story we are going to tell and how we are going to create a page for your story at the same time.
Heritage architecture is a special interest of our principal, Nathalie Scipioni. She has a Master’s degree in Architectural Heritage from the specialist École de Chaillot in Paris.
Her broad heritage portfolio includes:
When working on a heritage project with NSStudio we can do several things. We’ll prepare the heritage report but we can also design the building as well as the interior.
Working with the one team, rather than several different consultants, will save you time and ensure a smoother project with a consistent finish that matches your vision.
