Launching Our Built Heritage

Our Built Heritage

05-06-2024 • 5 mins

Hello and welcome to Our Built Heritage with myself Alexis Nicolaidis.


This podcast is for anyone interested in historic buildings. This could be a traditional cottage, a Victorian terrace, a Georgian manor house or even a stately home. Whether it is listed or not, they are all special and interesting and part of Our Built Heritage.

As a heritage interior designer, I am obsessed by our built heritage and what makes a building special. That could be the setting, interior and exterior details, who lived there, how it evolved and so on and this is before I get in to designing spaces where feelings, emotions, requirements for the space and the history combine with the more physical products and a client’s needs that make up a space.


I will be speaking to like-minded people who work in the industry or own a traditional and/or listed property to share their experiences with working with an older property. We will talk about how they got into their industry, the spirit of a place and why it is important along with any top tips they have to help you if you are embarking on a project and we may even dispel a myth or two.

It is a must for anyone embarking on a project or has an interest in Our Built Heritage.

Guests will include:

  • heritage consultants,
  • heritage planning consultants,
  • architects,
  • property owners and estate managers,
  • artisan suppliers,
  • retrofit experts,
  • archaeologists,
  • specialist craftspeople,
  • site managers

and the list goes on.

From speaking with the amazing guests, it has broadened my view on working with buildings and I have expanded on my knowledge.  I am a firm believer that every day is a school day and there is always more to learn and/or have a memory refresh.

If you like what you hear it would be great if you can share Our Built Heritage with anyone else you think will find it interesting and also subscribe so that you know when the next episode has been released.
