Congratulations to Mirvac for receiving one of the National Trust’s Heritage Awards for the adaptive re-use of the Rozelle Tram Depot.

he National Trust describes Tramsheds as:

… an authentic, highly considered, heritage restoration project, salvaging and reinterpreting the iconic Tramway Depot. … Staying true to the building’s iconic heritage, Tramsheds has been carefully restored and where this wasn’t possible, replicated, to bring many of its most significant features back to life, including its saw-tooth roof first erected in 1904.

The precinct also pays homage to its more recent usage as an underground street artists’ venue, restoring and preserving some of the graffiti art it was latterly known for during recent years.

Tramsheds Harold Park’s design is inspired by the food halls of Europe. … In respect for the building’s legacy, the award-winning garden that was cared for by the depot workers and once surrounded the Tramway Depot is being recreated adjacent to the site.
