The best new local projects have been honoured in the Australian Institute of Architects’ 2016 Central Queensland Regional Architecture Awards announced Friday in Yeppoon.
The jury awarded Regional Commendations to seven projects (see list below) which will now progress to the coveted State Architecture Awards to be announced in Brisbane on 24 June.
In addition to a Regional Commendation, CQU Health Clinic Extension by Reddog Architects was presented with the J W Wilson Award for Building of the Year.
‘The CQU Health Clinic expansion integrates both the professional requirements of external parties, and a public interface, with the university’s learning objects. Sky-lighting, spatial interplay and a palette of natural colours bring a sophisticated quality to circulation spaces and a fresh sensibility to the healthcare typology,’ the jury noted.
St Brendan’s Catholic Primary School, Stage 1 by Bold Architecture + Interior Design was also awarded Regional Project of the Year in addition to a Regional Commendation.
Queensland 2016 Awards Jury Director, Michael Lavery (m3architecture), presented the Regional Commendations to the Central Queensland winners at the Yeppoon Town Hall on Friday 12 February.
