Redevelopment of 2-12 King William Street-2KW Bar
Sat. 22 October 2016, 11:45 am – 12:30 pm ACDT
The Former Bank of New South Wales Building is both a State Heritage and a Local Heritage (City Significance) place. It was constructed in the Inter-War Stripped Classical style, and is characterised by its simplicity and symmetry and is free of superfluous ornamentation.
The redevelopment sought to achieve a balance between functionality, flexibility, and the retention of heritage fabric, all at a reasonable cost. In the design and approvals process, a ‘heritage transaction’ was agreed whereby some fabric and significance was lost, or compromised, in order to facilitate the overall rehabilitation of the building. This was critical in the realisation and success of the project.
We invite you to join Claire Kneebone - interior designer for both 2KW and Jamies Italian as she explains the design process and reveals a few tricks of the trade.
