Adaptive Reuse Model Projects

No one likes to reinvent the wheel. In the preservation world (and life in general), chances are someone has faced the same issue as you, dealt with the same challenging type of project and lived to tell the tale.  Referring to model projects is a great way to show the potential of historic buildings, get people in your community educated and excited about the possibilities and learn from those who have done the work. Though each  project, community and circumstances are unique, there is always something to learn and use in your own preservation project and advocacy endeavor. 

There is an array of historic resource types and some buildings require creative approaches to adapt them for modern use. With this in mind, we started creating resource-specific documents that provide adaptive reuse examples (see below!).
