Welcoming a new generation
The Domain Lodge, like Lion Gate Lodge, Rathborne Lodge, and Victoria Lodge, will play a significant role in conserving the history and value of our Garden, Sydney and NSW well into the future.
Our vision is to restore, conserve and reinstate the Domain Lodge and Depot so that it remains a sustainable part of Sydney's fabric.
Here at the Garden we recognise that the value of heritage assets lies not only in their preservation, but in their adaptation. This allows and encourages local communities and visitors to connect with our urban history.
Our sites are significant to locals and visitors from around the world and our aim is to facilitate an adaptive reuse approach that can achieve economic, environmental and social objectives. This concept is similar in ways to the successful reuse of the Tramsheds in Glebe, and the Grounds of Alexandria – but on a much smaller scale.
Conservation, environmental sustainability, reduced expenditure, place revitalisation and community engagement are all important elements in the contemporary existence of our heritage spaces.
