Our Values

At Casafabrica, we are committed to values that define who we are and what we stand for. These help us chart a path for the future, and remind us of  who we are in the present. These values support our vision, they shape our culture, and unite our team and clients.

Sustainable Conservation


We share a responsibility to help preserve areas of historical significance, which enrich lives and create a connection to the community, past, present and to the future.

In doing so, we have an opportunity to bring in change by incorporating sustainable building designs and construction practices which create structures, and use processes that are environmentally responsible, and resource efficient.

Our role at Casafabrica is not just to understand the social, cultural and economic relevance of existing buildings, or to celebrate their heritage, but to add value in terms of design, materials, and work towards sustainable conservation!
