Description

Join leading heritage architect Ruth Woods as she explores the evolution of Newstead House, from its early beginnings as a Georgian cottage through to the grand rsidence we see today. As Brisbanes oldest standing home, there have been significant changes to its scale, size and fabric since it wsa first built in 1846. As one of the most significant homes in Queensland's history, the informal lecture will offer interesting insights in to early building practices.

Ruth Woods is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Architects, a practicing architect in heritage and was a member of the Queensland Heritage Council for eight years from 2002 to 2009. For five of those years Ruth was a member and then chair of the Development Committee of the Queensland Heritage Council.
Twelve years ago, Ruth started her own practice which specializes in the re-use and conservation of heritage listed buildings. Ruth owns a State listed property which she has adaptively re-used as her family home and this as well as other adaptive re-use projects has won her awards from the Australian Institute of Architects.
