Horizontal Navigation Bar w/Rollover Effect

Jury Citation

The restoration of the historic caretaker’s cottage in the seaside community of Rangitoto Island has conserved a unique historic building typology. The conservation works were carried out in a modest and effective manner, allowing for continuity in the building’s function within the community. The attention to detail, such as the interior finishes, has allowed the building fabric to remain intact. The building has been appropriately adapted into a museum and information centre that serves a valuable public education purpose. The community grassroots effort in accomplishing the project is to be praised.
