Laveter House relocation, Assisi Centre, Rosanna

Anyone been watching Mega Moves on SBS? RBA is gearing up to relocate a historic Queen Anne era house (pictured below) in early 2011, to enable the redevelopment of the Assisi aged care facility. Stay tuned for more details!

Keith Haring mural – conservation

RBA has been commissioned by Arts Victoria to prepare a Conservation Management Plan for the site of the former Collingwood Technical School (in anticipation of Circus Oz moving in), including a mural painted by Keith Haring in a single day in 1984. The mural is gradually fading and its future has attracted much community interest and concern. An appropriate conservation method is under development for this fragile piece of local heritage.

Maryborough Railway Station – verandah restoration

Stage 3 of the planned overall restoration works for the station has been documented and works are expected to commence shortly.

Roxburgh Park farm shed – adaptive re-use

We’re currently working with the City of Hume to develop an adaptive re-use strategy for this unique agricultural structure in Melbourne’s outer north.

Former stables – interpretation strategy

We are assisting Grant Amon Architects with interpretive elements of a new fit-out to an unusual State heritage-listed two storey stables in Melbourne’s CBD, dating from c1900. Horses were originally stabled on the first floor!
