" We aren’t interested in stopping time or progress. Historic buildings need to be periodically rehabilitated to continue their useful life. The trick is doing upgrades in a way that retains a building’s history and character. "

Carmen Pauli is a principal architect for Heritage Architecture & Planning. Since joining the firm in 1997 she has overseen a myriad of projects in all architectural phases. Her experience as project manager includes expertise in historical rehabilitation, restoration, reconstruction, relocation, and documentation such as Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS), Historic American Engineering Record (HAER), Historic Structure Reports (HSR), Feasibility Studies, Maintenance Manuals, and Conservation Assessment Program reports (CAP).
As project architect, Ms. Pauli has coordinated work, developed Construction Documents, and provided construction observation services for a variety of projects. Her recent work includes the 1829 Casa de Bandini rehabilitation in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park and the Fourth Ward School in Virginia City, Nevada, a property listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Ms. Pauli’s enthusiasm for architecture extends beyond her profession. In her personal life, her admiration for Modern architecture has led to recognition by both media outlets and preservationists for the restoration of her family’s Bill Krisel designed home in Borrego Springs and her Lloyd Ruocco designed home in La Mesa.
