The ASAA awards aim to reward commercial and residential projects that exhibit ‘good design values’ and ‘appropriate use’ of materials.

The Australian Stone Advisory Association (ASAA) Architectural Stone Awards were presented during designEX 2014 last month. David West of International Conservation Services and architect Stephen Varady, of Stephen Varady Architecture, presented the awards.
