Winners of the 2013 Brisbane Regional Architecture Awards were announced on Friday at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

One One One Eagle Street by Cox Rayner Architects and the Translational Research Institute by Wilson Architects + Donovan Hill (Architects in Association) were jointly awarded the John Dalton Building of the Year Award along with regional commendations.

Forming the centrepiece of a trio of towers marking the renowned precinct, originally masterplanned by Harry Seidler, Cox Rayner’s riverside commercial tower won the jury over.

“This project ingeniously resolved complex planning constraints to realise a highly engaging and distinctive architectural centrepiece. The organic structural-led design solution overtly expresses itself to create a uniquely sculptural building that transcends normal commercial imperatives and delivers an exemplary new landmark tower,” noted the jury.

The Translational Research Institute by Wilson Architects + Donovan Hill (Architects in Association) features a landscaped outdoor room, providing respite from the intensity of research.

“A great sense of generosity and enjoyability is ingrained into every aspect of this laboratory building. It offers a series of lavishly-crafted spaces across a range of scales that redefine not only the cramped campus in which it is located, but also the laboratory building typology itself,” said the jury.

Loucas Zahos Architects’ Taringa House received the House of the Year Award as well as a regional commendation. An original worker’s cottage, Taringa House has been expanded with a juxtaposed new addition by Loucas Zahos Architects to accommodate family activity while retaining the traditional frontage, to allow the home to remain firmly settled in the existing street fabric.

“A dramatic sectional idea connects an original timber cottage to the lost terrain of the back yard gully superbly. Drawn down into the site one is introduced to a grounded double height space elegantly sitting into the adjacent landscape. A beautifully crafted house displaying sophisticated tectonics with simplicity and warmth,” said the jury.

Fifty-one entries from the original 95 entered were awarded regional commendations on the night, and will now progress to the Queensland Architecture Awards taking place in Brisbane on 21 June.
