The approximately 150-year-old Barambah cattle station buildings have been awarded the inaugural 2009 Gabriel Poole Award for Building of the Year.
In awarding the prize, Jury Chair Justin O’Neill said: “Barambah Station is an exemplar of how issues of heritage and sustainability align in our current environment. The clever retention of existing building fabric is both smart and essential.”
He continued, “The rigour of the design process applied to the magnificent ‘bones’ of the existing house and sheds has resulted in an extraordinary range of buildings ready to commence their next 100 years of life.”
Twenty-one architectural projects in total were entered in this year’s awards, ranging from as far north as Dundowran (Hervey Bay) to Booroobin in the south.
