The building was faithfully restored by the Greek Atlas League and awarded the 2012 Marrickville Medal. Refreshments will be served.

The Marrickville Medal for Conservation has been awarded annually since 1995. It celebrates built conservation works that contribute to the understanding and preservation of Marrickville's rich cultural and architectural heritage.

The award was one of the first of its kind in NSW, and coincides with the state-wide National Trust Heritage Festival held in April every year. This year's theme was "Innovation and Invention".

Eligibility to enter the Marrickville Medal is open to all building works, completed in the preceding three years, which can be described as having positive conservation outcomes. Conservation could include any of the following approaches: preservation, restoration, reconstruction, adaptation or interpretation.

The three-person judging panel comprises: an owner/designer of the winning property from the previous year; a member of the Marrickville Heritage Society, and a conservation architect.
