A narrative informing the regeneration of Plymouth’s post-war city centre.

Authentic Futures was part of the team devising a public realm strategy for Plymouth City Council as part of its Better Places scheme. The practice provided a heritage narrative to underpin design interventions in the mid-century city centre and urged the declaration of a city centre conservation area. As of 2019, a conservation area has been proposed for the southern part of the city centre incorporating (with the exception of the listed Pannier Market) the best of the post-Abercrombie architecture.

Authentic Futures has prepared many successful heritage statements for private houses large and small. These range from works to a listed Cotswold manor house for a high profile celebrity client and a John Nash house at Regent’s Park, to small but complex extensions to listed cottages, mews, and apartments in Westminster, Kensington, Hampstead and elsewhere.
