AbstractPurpose – In adaptive reuse, the importance of place referred as ‘genius loci’, wheras authenticity refers to the design, materials, setting and workmanship of a building or place. Genius loci and authenticity are crucial evolving interconnected concepts; however, the concepts are usually studied separately and; consequently, overlooked in adaptive reuse practice. This paper provides precise definitions and an holistic understanding of these terms, and discusses complications related to the understanding of the concepts in the adaptive reuse of heritage buildings. Design/Methodology/approach – Content analysis is an acknowledged way of analysing information related to a subject area and allows researchers to provide provide new insights and knowledge in a particular area. This paper applies a critical content analysis of published works related to genius loci and authenticity over time. Findings – The findings show the inter-relationship of genius loci and authenticity, and how these concepts can be considered in the adaptive reuse of heritage buildings, in theory and in practice. Consequently, a checklist is proposed, to enable all interested parties engaged with adaptive reuse of heritage buildings to identify and preserve genius loci and authenticity. Originality/value – Identity and values of heritage buildings are argued to be the strongest reasons for adaptation. Amongst a wide range of values associated with the adaptive reuse of heritage buildings, place and authenticity are perceived to be the most confusing terms and concepts. Whilst place and authenticity are defined by many authors, their meaning and usage are subjective, which is a challenge in recognising and preserving the values they embody. This study contributes to the greater understanding of these concepts, their meanings and application in adaptive reuse.
