Historecycle was founded to showcase examples of historic building renovations where green elements have been successfully integrated into the building redesign. Historecycle promotes restoration and renovation, not demolition. We believe in refashioning old-fashioned buildings to save energy and benefit the environment. Historecycle started out by mining Chicago area architecture for examples of renovated historic buildings with LEED platinum, gold, or silver certification. We are branching out into other similar projects in Chicago and elsewhere that are not necessarily LEED-certified but are still focused on greening a historic building.
