Description: By contributing to the preservation of historic structures, we believe we can retain the rich history of our community while also providing for the needs of today. Innovative and appropriate preservation of the existing built environment will strengthen the urban fabric of our community and bring its citizenry closer to the society in which they dwell. Located in historic downtown Rome, the restoration of 208 Broad Street was a personal project for CEVIAN Design Lab, as it is now the firm's home. From reclaimed wood, to original hardwood flooring, and to the reuse of the original storefront, the architecture of the space is found in the details. We believe we have an economic responsibility to reinvest in our existing infrastructure and revitalize it for use in our contemporary environment.
