Thirty projects from across Brisbane were honoured at the Australian Institute of Architects’ 2014 Brisbane Regional Architecture Awards announced tonight at special ceremony held at the Edmund Rice Performing Arts Centre.
Queensland 2014 State Awards Jury Director, Liam Proberts, presented 30 Regional Commendations to projects spanning a range of sizes and purposes, which now progress to the Queensland State Architecture Awards, announced in Brisbane on 20 June
The winners of the John Dalton Award for Building of the Year, House of the Year and an Enduring Architecture Prize were also announced.
The John Dalton Award for Building of the Year went to UQ Advanced Engineering Building by Richard Kirk Architect and HASSELL (Joint Venture) in addition to receiving two Regional Commendations for Public Architecture and Interior Architecture.
‘The UQ Advanced Engineering Building (AEB), a collaboration of Richard Kirk Architect and HASSELL exquisitely embodies a significant benchmark in sustainability within a complex building program of research, teaching and learning. AEB expertly embraces setting and place and has created an exemplar of engagement with renewable resources and local industry.
‘The project provides teaching, research and laboratory facilities either side of a five storey timber clad, elongated central atrium with a double glazed roof. The axis terminates in an expressive timber trussed off-form concrete lecture theatre with the lake setting as backdrop. Thoroughly considered and exquisitely detailed,’ the jury said.
Highgate Hill House by Twofold Studio and Cox Rayner Architects was awarded the Brisbane House of the Year.
‘A sublime piece of architecture, expressed through intricate detailing that is seamlessly engaged with an ironically humble brief. A visceral experience of occupation is manifest through a series of spatially modest but poetically executed rooms. A bespoke, controlled garden and a sequence of outdoor living zones complete the project,’ reported the jury.
The jury nominated and awarded a special Enduring Architecture Prize to AH Job and RP Froud for their 1960 project Torbreck, Queensland’s first multi-storey home unit development.
