TTW is proud to have been part of the heritage restoration of the Marrickville Library. The new library, built on an old heritage site in Sydney’s inner west, picked up three awards at the ‘The National Trust (NSW) Heritage’ Award in the Adaptive Re-use, Education & Interpretation and the Judges’ Choice categories. The Inner City Mayor – Darcy Byrne, said: “This beautiful public facility is more than a library, it’s a new town square for Marrickville which is helping to bring the whole community together.”
The heritage-listed original hospital building has been revived and incorporated into an expansive new library and community centre. The building features a large auditorium stair enveloped by a void that spans three storeys providing perimeter study areas and views across the space. The upper floors of the building host the library’s collections and a variety of reading and study spaces including bookable meeting/study rooms.
We continue to celebrate with the Installation of Passenger Lift – Hyde Park Barracks as Highly Commended by the judges.
The UNESCO World Heritage- Listed Hyde Park Barracks underwent a major $18 million revamp. TTW was engaged to engineer the installation of a new glazed lift structure, providing equal access to all three levels of the museum, previously accessible by stairs only. Our Heritage experts engineered the innovative freestanding lift shaft with no structural connection to existing floors or walls.
These “awards are so important because it celebrates all aspects of heritage in New South Wales.” Debbie Mills, Chief Executive Officer of the National Trust (NSW)
