Folium Architects works in the authentic tradition of classical and vernacular architecture.
The practice, which was started (as Jan Maciag Architects) in 1995, aims to produce and promote architecture that offers a realistic alternative for those clients who appreciate the many benefits of building in a traditional manner. Intrinsic to this work is a belief that traditional architecture has a proven quality and will endure the test of time and passing fashion.
Much of the work undertaken concerns the sensitive alteration of existing buildings as well as new buildings in architecturally sensitive areas. An expert knowledge of traditional materials and detail allows for a seamless integration of new work with the old. There is a respect for historical precedent that is also alive, inventive and aspirational.
