Ameera’s flagship projects include a heritage inventory review of almost 300 items for Sutherland Shire Council and conservation and adaptive re-use of Bungool, a homestead converted to a restaurant and function centre at Riverside Oaks Golf Course at Cattai. In her early career Ameera worked on the conservation and infill buildings to the State Library of Victoria, and managed alterations and additions to heritage items, in a long standing project at St Vincent’s College, Potts Point. She also undertook a Conservation Management Plan for Wolgan Valley Homestead for a luxury resort for Emirates Hotels.
Ameera is the first heritage architect to join Niche and her appointment brings an additional set of specialist skills to the heritage team in NSW.
