2018 Heritage Conservation and sustainable Buildings Awards

Adaptation of a Heritage Place

Winner – 201 Railway Road, Subiaco


‘A sensitive adaptation of a corner store and residence’
The combined former store and residence is becoming increasingly rare as a type. This fine example has been retained and sensitively adapted to accommodate the owners’ traditional Chinese Medicine practice. The two buildings have been integrated and adapted for a new commercial use while importantly still allowing their original form and use, and their streetscape context, to be readily understood. The retention of important original fabric and modifications to internal spaces have achieved a thoughtful adaptation of a heritage place.

New building in a heritage streetscape

Winner – 88 Heytesbury Road, Subiaco

‘A modern interpretation of the traditional streetscape.’
88 Heytesbury Road demonstrates the successful management of scale, massing and materials in a manner which enables a larger, and clearly modern residential building to sit respectfully within a traditional streetscape of modest single storey Federation era housing.  This has been achieved through a thoughtful pavilion design and a clearly contemporary take on traditional design details, combined with the clever use of re-cycled materials.

Architect – Luigi Rosselli Architects

Commendation – 27 Hopetoun Terrace, Shenton Park

‘A good neighbour to its context’
The design of this house reflects the owners’ appreciation of the original streetscape context of the property, and the traditional character of this part of Shenton Park. From Hopetoun Terrace, the new building presents as a modest, single storey timber cottage, combining modern materials with a simple interpretation of traditional proportions and details. The two-storey section of the house has been set behind the main roofline and is a secondary element in streetscape views.
