As you know, we value our pride ourselves on maintaining close relationships with our neighbours. Since 2017 Sydney Living Museums have been enabling the public to go inside landmark buildings, view skylines, immaculate architecture and gain access to otherwise closed off spaces. This year is no exception, with the program going digital.
Quay Quarter Sydney are a major partner of the Sydney Open program for 2020 as part of this we are showcasing a sneak preview of Hinchcliff House, one of the only two heritage properties that contribute to the authenticity and craftsmanship of Quay Quarter Lanes. The behind the scenes look at Hinchcliff House will take you on a journey dating back to the 19th century when the first circulated images are found of Hinchcliff Woolstore and the importance of wool for Australia in the global market. You will be the first to see that no detail has been overlooked in the refurbishment and restoration of this iconic landmark.
The digital Sydney Open program will focus on City, Garden and Home. You can learn more here.
There was three live panel discussions New Heritage, The Future of Sydney and Modern Sydney
Our very own Michael Wheatley spoke alongside heritage architects, homeowners and historians for a vigorous debate on what makes a building important enough to conserve and the battles often involved in defining a building’s value.
