Walter Read Reserve – Paddington Reservoirs

  • Architect:Tonkin Zulaikha Greer
  • Client:City of Sydney
  • Value:$8m

Originally built in two stages in 1866 and 1878, this heritage reservoir in Paddington has been converted and its use adapted to incorporate gardens, public access and provision for future commercial space.

The work required structural stabilisation and repair of the existing brick vaulted roof structure to maintain the ruined character of the space.
