Ancient Wisdom for Today
Noble Materials + Craft Knowledge = Buildings Worth Caring About
Craftsmen from the past carefully gathered and passed down knowledge of good materials and techniques for building. They knew about good materials and how they worked together. They were concerned as much for function and preservation as they were for aesthetic and decoration.
In this spirit, Sage Restoration supplies materials and tools for building and restoration, using traditional European craft wisdom, materials, and techniques for modern application. From the restoration of national historic sites to new construction, it is our aim to work together to help restore the spirit of craftsmanship and contribute to restoring the built environment into one that is worth caring about.
So the question we must ask ourselves is:
How will we restore our relationship with the built environment, and what will be the heritage buildings of the future?
