Project Profile


2008 Honourable Mention

Archiepiscopal Palace

Horizontal Navigation Bar w/Rollover Effect

Jury Citation

After a sustained multi-year effort, this significant example of colonial architecture has been restored to its former glory. The project has undertaken technically competent restoration works and addressed a number of inappropriate previous repairs and additions. The works have been carried out in an appropriately modest way, using appropriate technology, traditional materials and local craftsmanship. The historic building fabric and original technology of the building have been respected and retained, including the natural climate control techniques. The project stands as a noteworthy model for safeguarding other vulnerable historic religious buildings in the Goa World Heritage site.
