The evening’s top prize, the Jack McConnell Award for Public Architecture, was presented to BVN Donovan Hill and Hames Sharley (architects in association) for The Braggs at The University of Adelaide. The university’s new research facility has been externally designed to echo the building’s internal focus. Dedicated to photonics and advanced sensing, the research hub stands as a crystalline glass structure which reflects and refracts sunlight and provides a light-filled working space representative of the program it houses.

A residential glass house in the Barossa Valley designed by Max Pritchard Architect, which sits sympathetic to its surroundings, was awarded the John S Chappel Award for Residential Architecture – Houses and was also recognised a second time for sustainability, taking out an award in the Sustainability category.
