DiDonato has provided architectural services on many historic buildings. Architecturally significant buildings such as Buffalo City Hall, the Birge Mansion, and Rockwell Hall at Buffalo State College are a few of the structures entrusted to DiDonato Associates.
We understand the issues working on these types of buildings and the emotion that surrounds them. We have worked with New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (SHPO) to ensure that any repairs and/or modifications to these buildings follow procedures that will preserve the historic significance of the facility, while meeting up-to-date codes and regulations, as well as users’ needs.

The exterior design of the natatorium incorporated face brick finishes currently on site as a means of creating a cohesive sense of campus.
