The Pah Homestead is a substantial 1,500m2 house built in the late 1870s within a park-like estate now known as Monte Cecilia Park in Hillsborough, Auckland.
The interior and surrounds of the homestead have a Category A scheduling under the Auckland City Council District Plan and New Zealand Historic Places Trust.
Auckland City Council entered into a partnership with the James Wallace Arts Trust (JWAT) to restore the property and create a home for the JWAT collection.
Significant landscaping works around the homestead and park were also undertaken.
RDT Pacific was engaged directly by Auckland City Council Arts, Community and Recreation Policy group as Project Manager for all aspects of this significant, high profile project.
RDT Pacific led the project team through the investigation of options to ensure that new uses, structure and services could be accommodated with the highest respect for the original fabric. Close involvement of Council heritage advisors and the New Zealand Historic Places Trust ensured a good working relationship and useful input throughout the project.
