Heritage Redesigned: adapting historic places for contemporary New Zealand.
This booklet was prepared by the NZHPT to encourage and recognise the creativity and vision of all those owners and heritage professionals with the passion and belief to work with heritage places to create lasting value. There are many reasons for finding uses for historic places, rather than merely destroying them to build anew.
Heritage Redesigned includes a discussion of the values and benefits associated with reusing (whether repurposing or not) heritage places, and several short, easy-to-read, practical examples of adaptive reuse within the New Zealand context.
This booklet is intended to be a living document, and further case studies and information will be added over time.
