The Victorian chapter of the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) announced the winners of its 2012 Victorian Landscape Architecture Awards on Friday 23 November.

Taking home the most prestigious award – the Victoria Medal for Landscape Architecture – was Site Office’s Keast Park for the City of Frankston. A finely crafted project, the jury praised the project for “marrying architecture and landscape to deign the transition from coastal dune to the built environment”. Site Office received an AILA award for the original master plan in 2004, as well as a commendation for urban design from the AIA.

At the core of the project is a detailed boardwalk that both protects the reinstated dune landscape and shelters the grassy local park and community activity. “The project explores the integration and overlap of multiple community facilities and activities, promoting a stronger sense of community ownership and engagement,” said the jury.
