Large-scale, multi-award-winning projects unsurprisingly and deservedly attracted much attention on Australian Design Review in 2012, with 1 Bligh St proving to be the most popular project of the year and the award-winning Royal Children’s Hospital coming in at third place. But residential projects marked their territory too, with Sparks Architects’ Australian modernist pavilion – the Montville House – coming in at second, Smart Design Studio’s Tusculum Street Residence in fourth and Matt Gibson Architecture’s Kooyong House in fifth place.
March Studio’s ever-popular Baker D Chirico in Carlton also made the list after a wildly successful year, as did the mirrored ‘reverse disco ball’ facade of Charles Wright’s Cairns Botanic Gardens Visitors Centre.
