New South Wales
Built in the 1920s in the interwar Beaux Arts style, this beautiful building was first utilised as a gathering place for the First Church of Christ Scientists. Reimagined as Yirranma Place the precinct is now home to the headquarters of the Paul Ramsay Foundation and is a true reflection of the legacy of the Ramsay Health founder and generous benefactor to Australian charities committed to breaking cycles of disadvantage.
Light touch interior renovations reflect a guiding principle to acknowledge and celebrate past forms through a sequence of beautiful spaces sitting within the existing shell – new additions are sculptural, robust and respectful of the heritage fabric.
New areas are designed with future flexibility in mind while the openness in design creates clear sightlines, allowing light to penetrate the depths of the new floor plates.
