Design & Restoration Services: Historic Services



"Arciform, the general contractor, did a fabulous job... It definitely is worth taking the time to go look at how tight & precise their joinery is-especially at where the knee braces are let into the log columns (not easy to do!) & at the carpentry on the mitered column bases & capitals. They are true craftsmen. I'm very pleased with how this project turned out-it definitely restores the historical integrity, function, & beauty to the building!" 

- Construction Project Manager, Heidi Overman, of the Engineering & Design Division of the State of Oregon

Arciform is proud to be a part of preserving the Northwest's rich architectural history, having done historically accurate and period appropriate renovation work on a number of public and private historic properties. 

A core part of Arciform's philosophy of historic preservation is that our built environment must be preserved, while keeping these structures functional and livable - thus preserving both the past AND the future. Modernizing the energy efficiency and performance of a building while respecting its legacy is an important way to ensure that historic structures remain both "preserved" and viable for years to come. 

Beyond the craftsmanship and experience necessary to preserve and enhance historic properties, Arciform is able to navigate the complex requirements unique to these structures, from proactively engaging the preservation community to ensuring that the guidelines of bodies such as the National Historic Registry are scrupulously followed throughout the renovation process.
