John G. Waite Associates, Architects PLLC
“I am an architect who specializes in historic preservation,” says Waite. “I’ve had the good fortune to work on some of the most significant historic properties across the United States. Every historic building is an individual case and has its own special needs and requirements. The best way to achieve success with a preservation project is to thoroughly research and understand the building and not allow preconceived notions to define the solution, which needs to be both practical and beneficial for both the building and its users.”
