Lisa Oestreicher MA MSc is an independent paint analyst with over 20 years’ experience in the field of architectural paint research.
Having studied at the Bartlett School of Architecture and the Architectural Association she worked for Westminster City Council as a Senior Conservation Officer before taking the opportunity to specialise further. In 1994 she began two years of training in architectural paint research with the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Royal College of Art. In 1997 she established her consultancy practice in Bath, England.
The Bath studio combines analytical expertise with specialties in architectural research and listed building legislation. Lisa works with clients to formulate a brief which will meet their needs in the most cost-effective manner. Detailed reports outlining the analytical findings are produced and if required a colour palette and specification for redecoration can be supplied. By endeavouring to understand the needs of the client, and through effective communication of the historical and analytical findings, successful project outcomes are ensured.
The practice has had the opportunity to work on a wide breadth of projects ranging from royal palaces to civic buildings in the UK and abroad. Past projects include Kensington Palace, St. Paul’s Cathedral, William Morris’s Red House, the Victoria & Albert Museum, Knole, Hampton Court Palace, Ham House, the Royal Courts of Justice, Woburn Abbey, Bristol Old Vic Theatre and Hong Kong Central Police Station. Clients include the National Trust, English Heritage, Historic Royal Palaces, CADW, the House of Lords and several national museums, as well as many private property owners.
