St Gregory’s Hall by Collins Caddaye Architects wins top prize at AIA 2012 ACT Architecture Awards in Canberra.

St Gregory’s Hall by Collins Caddaye Architects has been awarded top honours at the Australian Institute of Architects’ (AIA) 2012 ACT Architecture Awards in Canberra, receiving the prestigious Canberra Medallion and the Romaldo Giugola Award for Public Architecture.

The jury praised the multi-purpose hall, set within the grounds of a primary school and old church, as “a fine example of excellence in all aspect of the art of architecture…demonstrating that modesty and good manners are no impediments to a successful and clear architectural statement”.

Joanna Nelson Architect’s Potato Point House received the Malcolm Moir and Heather Sutherland Award for Residential Architecture – Houses and a commendation for Art in Architecture. The “delightful and unassuming coastal retreat challenges conventional perceptions of what a house really is and can be,” said the jury.

The Education Prize went to the “imaginatively designed and excellently constructed” Mother Teresa School by Munns Sly Moore Architects and BVN Architecture’s Survival at Sea Facility, The Waterfront HMAS Creswell was presented the award for Small Project Architecture.
