A warm welcome for MASCo in Bath
Progress gathers pace as the new MASCo Walcot project rises from the former architectural business started thirty years ago by Rick and Jane Knapp. The generosity of spirit and welcome conveyed by the local people, Walcot Street Traders and civic leaders has been quite overwhelming.
When the work is complete and the display areas and offices properly on stream we can begin to roll out the full extent of our proposals.
Changing the face of architecture, design and material resourcing
Before long we hope MASCo Walcot in Bath will come to represent the very best in Sustainable Architectural Design and Planning Consultancy, all fronted by the new architectural antiques and traditional building materials showrooms at 108 Walcot Street.
The project will bring together in Bath, for the first time, multi disciplinary skills to change the face of architecture, design and material resourcing.
Dynamic Conservation of Bath’s heritage
The very lifeblood of the City of Bath as a World Heritage site must be rooted in conservation and preservation, as a dynamic and progressive movement that enables the Georgian architecture and Roman origins to be maintained as a living environment for the people of Bath in the 21st century.
The essential need is to establish a way to preserve everything that is worthy and be sustainable at a time of global environmental change.
The development of thinking and policies that will enable this magnificent city to prosper within the context of the national framework presents challenges that cannot be ignored.
We do not exist in a vacuum. However, we have a unique opportunity to address design and planning for the 21st century with new approaches of integrated systems that recognise the need to act and behave sustainably.
Preserving and reusing traditional building elements and materials, diverting them from landfill and finding alternative uses, is the ‘front of house ‘ mission’ for MASCo Walcot together with plans for a comprehensive conservation and sustainable design community to create ‘thinking’ to change our world
