Graduate Heritage and Design Consultant
Annabelle Wijaya, GML Heritage and Design Consultant, has a background in interior architecture and heritage. She holds a Bachelor of Interior Architecture (Honours) from the University of New South Wales and a Graduate Diploma of Heritage Conservation, with a focus on the revival of heritage buildings into contemporary places.
Through her tertiary education and industry experience, Annabelle has developed skills in undertaking heritage significance assessments, and the production of heritage impact statements and conservation management plans. She has an interest in the disaster risk management of cultural heritage places and serves as the Secretary of Blue Shield Australia, the cultural equivalent of the Red Cross.
With her talent for photography and eye for good design, Annabelle specialises in photographic archival recordings and artefact photography. She also provides the team with invaluable graphics and design support, and has assisted with a recent GML brand refresh.
Fluid, dynamic and flexible, heritage places can coexist with innovative architecture for striking design, world-class sustainability outcomes and public engagement with a site’s past and future. I’m interested in how heritage conservation, interpretation and adaptive re-use can help build the cities of tomorrow.
