Maryborough Railway Station is one of the most significant railway heritage assets in Australia. Its conservation has recaptured the former grandeur of the station – not only ensuring its ongoing use, but also providing a means to engender broad public support for the conservation of other parts of the Victorian rail network.

In 2002 RBA Architects and Conservation Consultants was commissioned to prepare a Conservation Management Plan for this highly significant heritage place. Conservation was completed in 2012.

RBA's key objective was to restore the protective exterior of the building so as to prevent further deterioration of fragile interior fabric. A series of complex conservation measures were implemented across a range of traditional crafts and trades including; slatework, leadwork, traditional coloured render treatments, architectural terracotta and cast iron.

Hassell

One of Adelaide's finest modern homes, McConnell residence was designed and built in 1967 by Jack McConnell. McConnell was one of the founders of McConnell & Hassell Architects now HASSELL. Ably and amusedly assisted by Cameron Bruhn, the house was photographed for the revisit feature Houses® #98. In shooting for revisit we strive for for images that speak of the relationship between architecture and inhabitation.

Barcelona Pavilion

Barcelona Pavilion
Mies van der Rohe

The German Pavilion for the 1929 Barcelona International Exhibition, this is the building that spawned THAT column and THOSE chairs.  It was demolished in 1930 but a replica was built in the 1980's.  Normally I wouldn't endorse a replica but... I photographed it again this year with the category winners and jurors of this years World Architecture Festival enjoying cocktails and canapes poolside. As you would!

This pre-fabricated cottage won the John George Knight Award for Heritage at the 2009 Victorian Architecture Awards for RBA Architects & Conservation Consultants + JAM Architects. Originally imported from Singapore in 1852-3, the restoration and conservation of this modest South Melbourne building is described by the awards' jury as an inspirational example of heritage architecture: "a revelatory intersection between history and the present".
