Lain neglected for years, SMFA were engaged by Duke Group to undertake conservation works and restore the Local Heritage Place in to a habitable and compliant building.

The 1899 Art Nouveau Villa is one of a kind for Adelaide. It features distinctive decorative carpentry to the verandah, an artistic window pediment and beautiful lead light windows.

The project involved reroofing, reconstruction of the front wall and construction of a new arbour and courtyard which sought to provide both amenity to the occupants and strength to the leaning western wall.

Internally, the floor plate was minorly amended to create an open and flexible office space with up to date amenities suitable for an array of prospective tenants.

A heritage gem restored to its former glory, SMFA are excited to see works completed in the next few months.
