Heritage Works

Cedar West combines traditional craftsmanship with modern technology to create beautiful replacement doors and windows for classic and heritage-listed buildings. 

We are able to custom-build timber doors and windows that complement the historical and cultural significance of the building. We can also incorporate custom modifications to suit special requirements, including acoustic considerations and heritage listing guidelines.

Please see below for examples of heritage projects featuring Cedar West joinery. 

Old Treasury Buildings

St Georges Terrace, Perth WA

View Treasury Video

Cedar West is proud to have been involved in the award-winning refurbishment of the Old Treasury Buildings in the heart of Perth.

The heritage-listed Old Treasury Buildings are situated on one of the most important and iconic sites in Western Australia, and have a rich history dating back to 1889. Over the years these State Buildings have been used for a variety of uses, including as the General Post Office, Treasury, a police court and cellblock, and the office of the Premier and Cabinet, before they were vacated and left to sit empty for almost two decades.

The Old Treasury Buildings have now been completely refurbished as part of a major revitalisation project to breathe new life into the area. The buildings have been carefully restored to return them to their original grandeur, and to create a luxury hotel and exciting mix of other hospitality and retail uses. The six-star hotel features 48 sumptuously appointed suites, dining rooms, lounge, library plus private meeting and function rooms.

Replacing over 400 windows and doors

As part of the refurbishment, it was necessary to replace all of the existing timber windows and doors throughout the buildings. 

Cedar West provided a customised solution to design, manufacture and replace all of the joinery, including more than 400 double hung windows and numerous door sets. Specifications for the project were very comprehensive and included detailed requirements to satisfy heritage listing and acoustic considerations. The builder for this project was Built construction group.

Our solution included the replacement of joinery with certified, sound-efficient solid timber windows and doors, which were all custom-designed, manufactured and installed by Cedar West.

Award-winning design

This project has been recognised for its innovation and was awarded the George Temple Poole Award (the highest honour) at the WA Architecture Awards 2016, as well as the heritage award. The judges stated that this “thoughtful and thorough restoration will ensure the buildings last many more generations”. COMO The Treasury Hotel has also won a number of other awards, including Hotel of the Year (Gourmet Traveller) and Australasia's Best Hotel (Conde Nast Traveler).

Warders Hotel

Henderson Street, Fremantle WA

Warders Hotel, Fremantle

Originally built by convicts in the 1850s to house their prison warders and their families, these historic buildings have now been extensively renovated to create a boutique hotel and bar/restaurant. 

The Victorian Georgian style row of six terrace houses has been converted with finesse, enabling the insertion of modern elements required to meet contemporary standards, while reflecting the original historic use. This project has won numerous awards, including the Heritage Architecture Award and the Ross Chisholm & Gil Nicol Award for Commercial Architecture (WA Architecture Awards 2021). The judges recognised that the project demonstrates "what can be achieved when architectural innovation and heritage expertise are combined with a rigorous design philosophy and diligent research into the history of place".

Cedar West worked closely with the architects and builders to provide unique joinery solutions for this project. The original heritage windows were retained, and new solid timber casement windows were added directly behind them (inside the building). The new casement windows were double-glazed with sound control glass to reduce the transmission of noise from outside the building. Cedar West also supplied new timber doors, including barn doors, Mighton and Guildford doors.

Washington House

East End, Newcastle NSW

Washington House, East End Newcastle

Washington House is a new 10-storey building that incorporates three existing heritage facades. It forms part of the award-winning East End redevelopment project in Newcastle. The original timber joinery had deteriorated over the years, and had been damaged by weather, squatters and wildlife. The putty in the windows had also degraded, causing the glazing to become loose (which was a safety concern).  

Cedar West manufactured over 100 new solid-timber windows, including curved double-hung and arched windows with beautiful heritage-style features designed to blend with the fabric of the original buildings. The joinery and mouldings on this project were very ornate, and Cedar West supplied fluted pilasters, intricate dentil cornices and gun-stock stiles and custom bolection mouldings for the doors. The design incorporated 10.76mm sound-controlled laminated glazing for safety, as well as thermal and acoustic control. The putty-look was replicated using angled bead, which is designed to hold glazing firmly in place for many years.

SubStation 164

Sub-Station No 164 is an exciting redevelopment project, converting two industrial heritage buildings into a modern office tower. Sitting atop the tower is a seven-level sculptural glass extension making a distinct statement on Sydney's skyline.  

The project revitalises two historic buildings - the original Sydney power Sub-Station and the adjacent industrial warehouse building - into contemporary retail and commercial spaces. The builder for this project was Built construction group.

Cedar West supplied a large number of timber windows for the historic elements of the buildings. The windows incorporated heavy timber sills and mullions with intricate mouldings to blend with the heritage fabric of the existing building. New, thicker glazing was engineered to provide modern acoustic and thermal performance.

Art Deco Inspired Home

Menora, WA

Custom timber doors and windows for Art Nouveau home

The owners of this lovely character home wanted their new extension to create spaces that felt seamless with the existing Art Deco era house. This care and attention to detail has resulted in spaces that feel like they had always been there and tie in perfectly with the existing home.

The original house featured solid jarrah timber windows with distinctive leadlight designs. Cedar West was able to supply new jarrah timber casements that closely matched the original windows. The frames were fitted with stunning leadlight glazing, which complements the heritage design. Cedar West also supplied new bifold doors with a "sunburst" timber detail. The new doors provide an excellent solution, combining sympathetic deco-style detailing with modern functionality.

Enex Building 

Perth, WA

Victorian heritage facade restoration

The "enex" building is located in the heart of the Perth CBD. Due to structural detoriation, it was necessary to reinstate the facade of this building.

Cedar West worked closely with the heritage architects and builder to recreate the traditional timber detailing for the original facade. We used photographs and a 3D scan of the building to replicate the complex mouldings and windows for the facade. The three-dimensional data was used to programme our 5-axis CNC to shape the timber to reflect the original detailing on the facade. 

Cedar West supplied over 30 custom-made windows for this project, together with beautiful curved timber mouldings. Due to the CBD location, the new joinery had to be craned into place outside of working hours to minimise disruptions.

Victorian Warehouse

Heritage warehouse window replacement

The D&J Fowler warehouse building is a lovely example of Victorian industrial architecture.

The original windows in the building had deterioriated over time, and Cedar West was appointed to supply new replacement timber windows for the warehouse. There were a number of requirements for the new windows - they needed to have a similar design and look as the original joinery, they had to meet the heritage listing requirements for the building, and they also needed to comply with modern building standards.

Cedar West supplied solid jarrah double-hung windows with our tilt-and-remove sashes, together with awning windows featuring open-in sashes and our exclusive self-draining sill system. The new windows not only look great, they also improve the thermal and acoustic performance of the building.
