Following on from Assessment 2, students are to design an extension, addition and/or part retrofit for their earlier selected heritage listed/recognised site. Students are to put into practice the principles of working on heritage buildings/site they have learnt in the lectures and tutorials.

1. Report format including cover sheet, content page, plans, photos, graphics and bibliography.
2. A brief description of your heritage building including: the name, date of construction, period and style, the architect/s involved. Identification of e.g. materials, alterations, additions, views, spaces manufactured/pre- fab elements, timber species, brick types, etc.; any significant alterations and additions that have been made to date; a brief summary of the site/buildings significance and whether the site or building heritage is listed under the state or the local council policies or both.
3. A detailed description of the proposed works as illustrated in your drawings including construction systems, materials, colours finishes and purpose.
4. How the proposed works will limit any negative impact on the heritage fabric, cultural, social and historical heritage significance of the site/building.
5. How the proposed works will contribute to the ongoing heritage importance and viability of the building/site’s existence in today’s social and built environmental context.
NOTE: Students may use relevant parts of their own work from Assessment 2 without concern for plagiarism. Please ensure that you have expressed the above information in your own words. No copying and pasting from original sources.

Assessment 3 Outline
New design in heritage contexts can accommodate a rich variety of interpretation and expression. It is important not to directly mimic the existing heritage building. Modern additions can be successful when working with heritage.
Understanding the heritage significance of the place and the quality of the design response are key. New work must recognise and enhance the heritage significance of the place and context, while enabling the place to have ongoing, viable life that responds to the contemporary needs of clients, users and the community.
