Conservation

Conservation as an interdisciplinary discipline combines all types of policies, strategies, legal, administrative and technical measures as well as tasks and assignments in connection with cultural heritage and its preservation. 

Conservation also includes the development of an awareness about heritage, its meaning and the conservation tasks owners and the general public should be aware of.

Restoration

Restoration comprises a variety of activities that are directly carried out on the heritage building or object with the purpose of facilitating its enjoyment, understanding and use. Activities are carried out in the event of a loss to the value or functionality of cultural heritage due to prior alterations or deterioration. Restoration activities are based on a respect for the original material and the historical context.
