WOODFORD ACADEMY
Building precinct in the Blue Mountains, NSW

Completion: 2000 - 2002
Client: National Trust of Australia (NSW)

Conservation with New Works

Woodford Academy is the oldest group of buildings in the Blue Mountains with a history dating back to the 1840s. It is one of the most intact examples of a roadside inn complex in NSW. The inn buildings were converted first to domestic use (c.1870) and lastly for use by Woodford Academy (1907). The Academy is now owned by the National Trust of Australia (NSW).

Work in 2001 saw the completion of carpentry and joinery repairs commenced earlier, reconstruction of kitchen wing verandah and adaption of rooms to new uses. A caretakerís residence has been inserted within the kitchen wing and the remaining spaces will have public and interpretation uses.

The project won the RAIA (NSW) Award for Architecture, Conservation and Adaptive Re-use in 2002.
