Five Bayside properties have been awarded at the Bayside Built Environment Awards. Hosted by the Bayside City Council, the program recognises designs that show sensitivity to the neighbourhood character, streetscape quality, local identity, heritage values, public places and the natural environment.
Maddison Architects Coronet Grove won Best New Dwelling, while Best Extension to an Existing Building was shared between SJB Architects and Austin Design Associates.
Cocks & Carmichael Architects won Most Creative Building Design for their project at 319-323 St Kilda Street, Brighton, and CBG Architects won in the Best Medium Density Housing Development category for 27 St Ninians Road, Brighton.
Maddison Architects Coronet Grove features a zinc-clad volume, which cantilevers out over the smaller ground floor volume, creating an open living space with expansive views over the bay area.
Austin Design Associates have transformed a red brick residence, while SJBs renovation of a Brighton property transformed the 1970s home, using the existing colonnade to order the contemporary internal spaces.
The jury was chaired by Michael Top, Bayside City Council Group Manager of Sustainability, who said the awards, raise community awareness and understanding of urban design, landscape and heritage.
Nominations were invited from the community before a panel of design professionals, councillors and senior staff selected the winners.
Winning designs will be exhibited at Bayside City Councils Corporate Centres and on the councils website from 30 October. [“www.bayside.vic.gov.au/builtenvironment”:http://www.bayside.vic.gov.au/building_bayside_built_environment_awards.htm]

Drainage is often the forgotten workhorse of the building and design function. Yet drainage maintains a simple albeit vital purpose.
