Every Ukrainian city has buildings that can be characterized as its historical “face”, a visiting card, a place that is the most attractive for tourists. That is why the reconstruction of cultural heritage objects is a rather complex process that requires not only experience, but also the use of specialized equipment. If you need to reconstruct one of these objects, you need to familiarize yourself with the specifics of the current legislation in detail. The lawyers of our PRIKHODKO & PARTNERS company will help you with this.
According to Article 1 of the Law of Ukraine “On the Protection of Cultural Heritage”, a cultural heritage object is a significant place, structure, complex of structures that have brought down to our time the value of an aesthetic, archaeological, historical or artistic view.
Objects of cultural heritage can be alienated, transferred for use, ownership or management to another person only after the official approval of the relevant bodies for the protection of cultural heritage. Alienation of objects without such approval is prohibited.
What are the features of reconstruction of cultural heritage objects?
Reconstruction is an ambiguous term used in urban planning and architecture. Urban planning involves comprehensive reconstruction of historical places or their parts. The main purpose of such reconstruction:
- Development of various forms of public activity.
- Provision of the most favorable environment for life support.
- Increasing the comfort of living in cities.
- Maintaining the residential function of historical objects.
The reconstruction of cultural heritage objects is carried out in accordance with the principle of subordinating modern needs and functions to the requirements and possibilities of using cultural heritage objects. Complex reconstruction involves the connection between tasks, purpose, terms of implementation and content. The following activities are carried out sequentially: scientific research → design → planning → financing → implementation of the planned transformations.
Among the main principles of complex reconstruction:
- Program-targeted approach.
- Pluralism and differentiation of concrete decisions.
- Interagency and interdisciplinary.
- The priority of preserving objects of cultural heritage.
- The inclusion of reconstruction in the general process of social and economic development of the city.
It is important to remember that when acquiring rights to use monuments of architecture or history, it is necessary to be aware of all legal risks.
Cultural heritage sites are attractive investment sites. For example, housing located in historic districts is considered high-end due to its location. At the same time, it does not matter how outdated engineering networks and communications are. In turn, non-residential premises are optimal for placing restaurants, offices and other establishments designed for the wealthy public.
