THE RESIDENCY - ALICE SPRINGS

Project value: $300,000
Project status: Completed

Since its construction in 1928, The Residency has become a tangible symbol of the brief Vice Regal power and independence that Central Australia once had from the Northern Territory.

Almost all individuals who have resided in the building, or who have had the occasion to be official guests, including Queen Elisabeth II, have had significant impact on Northern Territory history.

Platt Keeler Architects, in association with Adelaide based Heritage Architects McDougall & Vines, undertook the design and documentation to restore the Residency so that the building reflected the adaption to life in an arid environment and as a unique reminder of regional response to government and administration that recognised difference in the Territory (no longer apparent in modern times).

The project was awarded the NT Royal Australian Institute of Architects JG Knight Heritage Award.
