2019 SA ARCHITECTURE AWARDS
14 May 2019
29 April 2019
From a state-of-the-art gym pavilion at Hilton Adelaide overlooking Victoria Square to the landmark development that is now known as St Mary’s Corner, six new projects are nominated in the annual South Australian Architecture Awards.
The refurbishment of staff facilities at Loreto College within the iconic State Heritage-listed Acacias building and a major reconfiguration of the Mary Ward building that has helped to drive a new education and learning direction for the College will be considered for awards in interior architecture and heritage.
House 108 – a delightful two storey addition to a typical eastern suburbs’ bungalow reminiscent of a New Zealand cabin – featuring extensive external timber cladding, large windows and strong connections to outdoor areas is nominated in the residential architecture category for alterations and addition.
While Baliol Residence, despite its historical context characterised by large homes in a landscape setting, is clearly the new kid on the block. With a barn shaped frontage giving way to an edgy modernist building form that responds to the contemporary ease and practicality of busy family life.
Judging was held in March where our architects presented to each project to the juries, and was followed by a series of jury site visits to each project. The awards will be announced at the Adelaide Convention Centre on Saturday 29 June.
