How to Fit Contemporary Office Space into Historic Buildings

You’ve decided on new office space. You’ve picked the perfect building and signed a lease. You are ready to begin designing, right? If you have chosen a historic building, the answer is: maybe not – not if that building has interior design review, such as that required in federal historic tax credit (HTC) projects. Historic Preservation and Going Green Historic preservation and sustainability go hand in hand. There is a misconception that HTC projects and LEED certified projects are mutually exclusive. On the contrary, green development and preservation can both be achieved when rehabilitating a historic building; thus, opening the door for developers and property owners to benefit from using federal, state and local historic incentives while meeting green building standards.
