A commercial project has been awarded the top prize at the Australian Institute of Architects’ 2013 Northern Territory Architecture Awards.

Green Well Building, Alice Springs by Susan Dugdale and Associates took out the night’s highest honour, the Tracy Memorial Award, for incarnating the “spirit of the Northern Territory”.  The two-storey retail and office development located in Alice Springs’ central business district was also acknowledged a second time, achieving the Peter Dermoudy Award for Commercial Architecture, for its positive contribution to the streetscape and strong sense of local identity.

“The building is very appropriate to its location, strongly contributing to the streetscape rather than competing with it. Overall, this building offers an alternative for diversity and much needed change in the commercially delivered environment of the Alice Springs CBD,” the jury noted.

Sixteen Northern Territory Projects across eight categories were nominated at this year’s awards, while Jury members Justin Hill of Kerry Hill Architects in Singapore, Brendan Meney of Brendan J Meney Architects in Alice Springs and Diana Richards, Assistant Director of the Northern Territory Library, selected eleven winners.

Projects that received a Named Award or an Architecture Award now progress to the 2013 National Architecture Awards to be announced in Sydney on 7 November.
