The Marrickville Medal for Conservation has been awarded, by Marrickville Council, annually since 1995. It celebrates for recent outstanding architectural conservation work that contribute to the understanding and preservation of Marrickville’s rich cultural and architectural heritage.
The award was one of the first of its kind in New South Wales, and coincides with the state-wide National Trust Heritage Festival held in April-May every year.
The three-person judging panel comprises: an owner/designer of the winning property from the previous year, a member of the Marrickville Heritage Society, and a conservation architect.
Last year’s winner was awarded to a property at 3 Collins Street, Tempe. You can read more about it in the Marrickville Medal 2013 story.
