PAYE Conservation Our Philosophy

Conservation - Roman (509BC – 450AD)

Roman Architecture

Roman Architecture covers the period from the establishment of the Roman Republic in 509 BC to the 4th century AD. The classic architectural style of The Roman Empire was marked by the use of the orders, arch, dome, and vault; its influence extending across all of Western Europe. The use of vaults and arches, together with a sound knowledge of building materials, enabled them to achieve successes in the construction of imposing structures for public use. The Ancient Romans intended that public buildings should be made to impress, as well as perform a public function. The Romans did not feel restricted by Greek aesthetic in order to achieve these objectives and imposing public buildings were created as a result

Confidence in our experience...

The conservation of Greek and Roman ancient monuments and buildings, including temples and basilicas is an area in which PAYE Conservation are well experienced. We offer our advisory services to clients and where required employ both preventative and remedial techniques to protect and preserve both objects and architecture

Experienced Craftspeople...

PAYE Conservation believe it is imperative that only craftspeople who are experienced with traditional materials should ever undertake a repair in a building (or on an object) of historical significance.We always ensure that all works are extensively documented in both photographic and annotated forms; before, during and after any intervention (to provide a greater understanding of the building/objects chronology for the future). This can prove invaluable in developing and maintaining an associated archive
