The Directors of Cyma worked for many years on historic building, conservation and restoration work as well as in the design and construction of new build green oak frame housing. These areas of work require an in depth knowledge of historic building design and construction techniques and demand a considered, sensitive approach to design with a close attention to detail.
At Cyma we have developed a considerable understanding and knowledge of many types and styles of historic building, from the traditional Kent vernacular domestic and agricultural buildings of the sixteenth century, through Georgian, Victorian, Arts and Crafts and Edwardian. We have worked on the restoration of these buildings and on their reproduction. We believe it is vital that we preserve and restore our historic buildings and that through our understanding and appreciation of our building tradition we can apply this traditional approach to the design of new buildings and develop a robust architecture for the future.
