BRINGING CLASSIC SYDNEY ARCHITECTURE BACK TO LIFE
Originally built in in 1974, the Calidad building in Woolloomooloo is an example of the ‘Sydney School’ architectural movement, whose pioneers included its award-winning architect Ian McKay. It’s also known as a great example of early sustainable Sydney architecture. Now, with Reform’s help, the first of the Calidad building’s historic trusses are being carefully rejuvenated and re-installed. All heritage listed, the timber trusses are being used in the new IDA apartments. The Reform team has successfully completed the first rejuvenation task in a very complex environment, demonstrating great understanding of the delicate process surrounding heritage components, and what’s involved to make these significant moments happen like clockwork.
