Queensland Architecture Awards winners

June 24, 2013

The Translational Research Institute in Brisbane, by Wilson Architects and Donovan Hill, wins the top award at the AIA 2013 Queensland Architecture Awards.

Thirty-five of Queensland’s most outstanding architectural projects have been honoured at this year’s Australian Institute of Architects’ (AIA) annual Queensland Architecture Awards, held at the state’s award-winning Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on 21 June.

Taking home the night’s top honour, the F.D.G Stanley Award for Public Architecture, was Wilson Architects and Donovan Hill (Architects in Association) for Translational Research Institute. The large-scale laboratory and research facility located in Brisbane is characterised by a flow of interconnected workspaces, which wrap around a central communal garden. The jury said the building “offers 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”. The project was again acknowledged on the night for its “great sense of generosity and enjoyability,” and presented with the G.H.M Addison Award for Interior Architecture.

The Robin Dods Award for Residential Architecture – Houses was awarded to James Russell Architect for Bisley Place House. Through its U-shaped structure, the house embraces a modern style of living, which allows open street-front access and encourages inhabitants to engage with their surrounding community.

Cox Rayner Architects were recognised three times for two Brisbane-based projects. The firm’s “exemplary new landmark tower,” One One One Eagle Street, received the Beatrice Hutton Award for Commercial Architecture, while its Constance Street Affordable Housing was presented with the Residential Architecture – Multiple Housing and the Harry Marks Award for Sustainable Architecture.

Charles Wright Architects’ “deceptively simple” alterations and additions to a residence in Far North Queensland, Re-Newell, was the winner of the  Hayes & Scott Award for Small Project Architecture, while a small-scale urban project exhibited at last year’s Venice Architecture Biennale was the winner of the Karl Langer Award for Urban Design. The Finding Country Exhibition by Kevin O’Brien Architects in association with the Finding Country Collective and Venti di Cultura was described by the jury as a “phenomenally attested, beautifully presented theoretical urban experiment”.
