Sydney Conservatorium of Music


Heritage Listed Building
Sydney Conservatorium of Music
The Greenway Building
Originally constructed in 1821 as the stables for the (at that stage) proposed Government House of New South Wales, the structure that houses the Conservatorium is one of the few surviving works of the convict architect, Francis Greenway. A dramatic gothic structure with turrets, the building was described as a ‘palace for horses’ and is a portrayal of the romantic vision of Governor Lachlan Macquarie and the British architectural trends of the time. The stables, located in proximity to picturesque Sydney Harbour, reflect the building techniques and the range of materials and skills employed during the early settlement era. Formally Government Stables for the Colony of NSW
