With regard to the treatment of traditional buildings in Australia, the Architect must have an in-depth knowledge of the Australian vernacular and how it has evolved over the past century and beyond. The Architect must believe that in order to successfully alter these buildings one must first try and understand the mindset of the original Architect. One must understand the traditional design principles and construction techniques and from there one can create a building which incorporates modern living and desirable and necessary environmental principles.
