Wallpapered Manse

The Wallpapered Manse is arguably the first house to be constructed in the town of Moruya, on the South Coast of NSW. 

Smith and Primmer worked closely with Peter Freeman Architects and the heritage houses trust to essentially put back together a house that was in a dilapidated state. During the process of the works, we were all taken on a journey of historical discovery due to the layers upon layers of specifically dated wallpaper. 

To achieve the outstanding result, it was required that we employ traditional techniques and source old-school products and items.
