Fremantle West End: a methodological approach to conservation and adaptive reuse

“Imbued with a message from the past, the historic monuments of generations of people remain to the present day as living witnesses to their age-old traditions. [...] The common responsibility to safeguard them for future generations is recognized. It is our duty to hand them on in the full richness of their authenticity”. (Venice Charter, IInd International Congress of Architects and Technician of Historic Monument, Venice, 1964.) On 18 November 2016 the Minister for Heritage has entered Fremantle’s West End in the Heritage State Register. In 2016 the UWA Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Visual Art dedicated an Architectural Design Master studio to the rehabilitation of the Fremantle West End heritage precinct. The students were required to conduct a research on a heritage building of their interest, identify historic and aesthetic values, survey and document through drawings the preservation status and needs, define compatible uses and finally develop the adaptive reuse project. This research initiated a novel collaboration between the UWA and the Fremantle Council, whose output will be presented at the exhibition: “Fremantle West End: a methodologic approach to conservation and adaptive reuse”. This exhibition collects free hand, digital drawings and models of twenty students who designed sensitive and successful architectural projects for the West End heritage precinct in respect of the principles of the Burra Charter and the City policies.
