Heirloom wins at State Heritage Awards

Heirloom by Match was recognised at the 2017 WA State Heritage Awards, winning the Conservation and Adaptive Reuse category and the prestigious Gerry Gauntlett Award.

The Gerry Gauntlett Award, named in honour of the late Heritage Council Chair, is a discretionary award which recognises an outstanding project in the Conservation and Adaptive Reuse category.

Heirloom by Match is the transformation of Fremantle’s historic Dalgety wool stores into 183 contemporary apartments. The four-level brick and iron warehouse was largely derelict prior to its redevelopment. Extensive conservation work was undertaken to restore, remediate and conserve the integrity of the existing structure, most of which has been retained.

The judges praised the project, citing it as ‘a massive undertaking that required its owners to reach above and beyond to find innovative solutions to conserve and enhance original heritage fabric while satisfying building, safety and utility requirements, as well as customer expectations.’

We are honoured to have had the opportunity to work on this landmark project. Heirloom’s success was made possible through a close collaboration with developer Match, supported by Sirona Capital, and the construction team at Built.

We also recognise the contribution of our consultant team, including Hocking Heritage Architects.

Heirloom demonstrates Cameron Chisholm Nicol’s sophisticated approach to solving complex multi-residential design problems. We are committed to creating livable apartments that deliver on both resident amenity and our clients’ commercial imperatives.
