Abstract (in English)

This paper will showcase the redevelopment of a local heritage site into a contemporary residential compound located on the outskirts of the small town of Dapto on the South Coast of New South Wales, south of Sydney. The redevelopment of the former Dapto Smelter site, now known as Brooks Terrace, Kanahooka, successfully amalgamates the extant built heritage elements of the site and provides comprehensive interpretation of the recently excavated archaeological evidence. This sustainable development will assist cultural heritage conservation of the Dapto area by preserving the industrial landscape and maintaining a link with the forebears of the present community. The ‘out of the stereotype’ Brooks Terrace development will contribute to regional growth by preserving the local population as well as attracting the new.
