Without a comprehensive understanding of the building’s history and its architecture, a contractor will perform unstudied modifications that may compromise the integrity of a significant historic property. Cultural landscape has as much of a historical significance as the buildings if not more.
“A building without landscape is a building on dirt”. Imagine Balboa Park without its magnificent landscape. The identification, documentation, analysis, evaluation, treatment and maintenance of historic sites… help ensure that the resource is available for the education and enjoyment of future generations. ZMK Design team makes certain that the element of cultural landscape is preserved during restoration project and, if the cultural landscape is missing or tainted, ZMK will restore and bring it back its former glory.
