Hamilton District Project

History, Heritage and Technology

The Hamilton District refers to the residential and business district where Wiser Solutions is based. It aims to document and illustrate the rich heritage of the area and tell the stories of the individuals who have lived here so people can reconnect with the past. At the same time it seeks to promote the area as a "silicone space" and as a place for digital and creatives to live, work and do business in the modern digital world.
