A community-focused child and family centre has been awarded the highest honour at the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) 2013 Tasmanian Architecture Awards, held at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery on Saturday June 15.

Liminal Architecture took out the night’s top prize, the Alan C Walker Award for Public Architecture, for its multi-purpose Bridgewater LINC and Child and Family Centre. The facility – encompassing a library, Service Tasmania shop front and child and family centre – was one of three family centres nominated in the 2013 awards but was recognised by the AIA above others for “creating both a strong civic quality and a domestic friendliness”.

This year’s People’s Choice Prize was awarded to Booth&Watts for its transformation of Harrington House. The public was won over by Booth&Watts’ restoration project, which entailed turning a pair of run-down, heritage-listed warehouses into a sleek house and studio set, which remain strongly characterised by their history.

Circa Morris-Nunn was twice recognised at the awards, receiving the Colin Philp Award for Commercial Architecture for the Mountain Retreat Medical Centre, a skillful enlargement of an established medical practice in South Hobart. The practice was again acknowledged with the Alexander North Award for Interior Architecture for their Meeting Room, St Mary’s Cathedral project.

Omnipod by Rosevear Architects received the Peter Willmott Award for Small Project Architecture along with the COLORBOND® Award for Steel Architecture, for creating what the jury called a “remarkable project that exemplifies all that combines to bring great architecture to fruition”.
