Conservation + Creative Re-use of Historic Buildings
Jackie Gillies + Associates carry out building conservation, creative re-use and associated archaeology of historic buildings and sites to the highest possible professional standards as well as promoting awareness of building conservation. The Practice, with offices in Queenstown and Dunedin, comprises a small team of professionals with like minded values, each with divergent but complimentary skills. It practices mainly in the South Island whilst also offering its expertise to the rest of New Zealand and Australasia.
It is with great sadness that we report the loss of fire of part of Paradise Homestead, near Glenorchy. The fire was caused by a massive lightening strike and the oldest portion of the house – the part designed by William Mason for his retirement – was completely destroyed.
Our projects encompass a wide range of building types from houses and cottages, redundant farm buildings, halls, churches, municipal buildings and ruins, as well as urban design guidelines.
