Adaptive reuse and nature focus for 2015 architecture awards

29 Jun 2015

Victoria, Queensland and Tasmania all hosted their architecture award presentations over the weekend, each state highlighting a diverse range of projects.

Adaptive reuse in heritage buildings came out as a strong influence in Tasmania this year with #thebarnTas and The Art and Craft House taking out the Heritage and Residential Architecture – Houses (Alterations and Additions) categories – both projects revitalised existing historical sites with great sensitivity.

Up in Queensland, it was nature that took centre stage with the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital by Conrad Gargett Lyons being named winner of three awards. The project was designed around the concept of a ‘living tree’. See what other projects won at the Queensland awards.

In Victoria, it was the Shrine of Remembrance by ARM Architecture that was awarded the State’s top honour, the Victorian Architecture Medal, described by the judges as ‘robust and sympathetic in its approach to detailing and built execution…’. See the full list of award winners.

All named and architecture award winners progress from each state to the National level which will be taking place in November.
