Conservation of Former Beresford Arms Hotel
Adelaide, SA, 2009
2010 AIA The David Saunders Award for Heritage 2010 Australian Civic Trust The Ian MacDonald Award Built in 1839, the Former Beresford Arms Inn was first licensed in March 1840. It is the oldest surviving hotel in Adelaide. Built of local limestone and rendered local brick, it displays simple Georgian architecture copied from England. The building underwent a number of changes from the early 1840’s until the 1920’s, but has remained largely unchanged since then. Flightpath Architects was engaged by Adelaide City Council to prepare a record of the condition of the building and to document its conservation and restoration. The conservation of the building was approached cautiously with the challenge to retain as much original fabric as possible and to remove as little as necessary. The building was suffering from a combination of problems: fire damage, falling and rising damp, inadequate stormwater removal, active termites, wood rot, and settlement of walls. Materials that could not be retained were carefully removed with damaged but sound timbers retained in situ. Some materials, including doors, floorboards, skirtings and architraves that were suitable for re-use, were carefully identified, removed and stored for subsequent re-use. Conservation of the Beresford Arms Inn has preserved a rare example of Adelaide’s colonial architecture.

Flightpath in association with Phillips/Pilkington Architects together worked on this exciting project for the City of Norwood Payneham and St Peters. The project involved significant works to the former St Peters Town Hall and the adjoining buildings, which included the Former Post Office and Telegraph Office. The works included new entrance structure, a new mezzanine floor within the former Town Hall, which is now the library was inserted into the space and included a lift and significant services upgrades. Flightpath and Phillips/Pilkington Architects also worked closely with Oxigen on the landscape component and Koush Design on the interior component to ensure a fitting context for these significant buildings. The project is a successful example of modern architecture used to bring life back to significant Civic Buildings.
