Wyckliffe

This fine Federation house, Wyckliffe, in Sydney was constructed in 1905 by William Ford, one of the discoverers of the Coolgardie goldfield in Western Australia.
 

In preparation for additions, conservation and restoration work, the practice provided conservation and design  advice and prepared a thorough heritage impact assessment with recommendations on conservation work to the house.
