Heritage Design Manual
This comprehensive, technical heritage design manual distils over a
decade of experience in providing technical advice to owners, developers
and local government.
The manual provides answers to the most frequently asked questions about
heritage design, such as: What is a heritage colour scheme? What doors
and windows should be used? How to add an extension to a heritage
building? What to do about problems such as rising damp and cracking
It is for students, owners, heritage consultants, developers and town
planners in fact for anybody who wants to find out about heritage
Each chapter of the manual addresses a separate topic and gives
practical solutions in an Australian context. As far a possible, it has
been set out as concise notes, relying on illustrations to summarise the
more complex aspects of heritage design.
The manual can be used by local government to set historically
appropriate standards for the most common changes to the exterior of
properties in conservation areas, heritage listed properties and
potential heritage items.
Each chapter is designed to form a separate information package of
advice. This can be emailed by heritage advisers or heritage planners to
clients, as an attachment to a letter of advice.
