Sustainability, innovation and rejuvenation celebrated at Queensland Architecture Awards

The winners of the Australian Institute of Architect’s Queensland State Architecture Awards have been announced at a special ceremony on Friday 24 June.

Following an extensive Regional Architecture Awards program, 83 projects were vying for state honours. On the night, 48 projects shared 58 accolades – Named Awards, Awards and Commendations – with a number of projects receiving multiple mentions.

Queensland’s global reputation as a research and innovation hub was evident with key university projects taking home top honours across a range of categories.

University of Queensland Oral Health Centre by Cox Rayner Architects with Hames Sharley and Conrad Gargett Riddel was a big winner on the night receiving the F D G Stanley Award for Public Architecture, an Award for Interior Architecture and an Award for Sustainable Architecture.

The advanced oral health and allied research and teaching facility is also Australia’s largest public dentist and was praised by the jury for ‘establishing a unique benchmark’ in providing collaborative student spaces together with a public interface.

A duplex created from a culturally significant, architectural ruin of four flats in Highgate Hill won the Job & Froud Award for Residential Architecture – Multiple Housing. Brighton Twin Set by Push is a respectful example of the rejuvenation of an interwar housing typology for modern use, with a flexible plan creating further opportunities for a variety of household and home work arrangements.

Queensland Chapter President, Bruce Wolfe congratulated winners and entrants for continuing to push boundaries and championing quality design in all areas of architectural practice.

‘It is inspiring to see such a range of incredible designs and project typologies happening all over the state and particularly heartening to see such strong sustainable elements at the core of many projects, evident in the awarding and commending of more projects for Sustainable Architecture than in any other category.’

Projects that received a Named Award or Award are now in the running for the National Architecture Awards to be announced in November.
