This year’s NSW Architecture Awards saw over 79 finalists compete across 12 categories including public architecture, educational, urban design, commercial, interior, residential, heritage and small projects.
Last week, over 60 accolades were handed out by the Australian Institute of Architects at the 2015 NSW Architecture Awards held at Sydney’s Town Hall.
The big winner of the night was BVN, which picked up the Sulman Medal for public architecture — the most prestigious award — for the Westmead Millennium Institute project.
“This is a project where every aspect has been considered. The sensitivity and deftness of this consideration has transformed the building’s logic into an uplifting and inspiring environment for collaboration and research,” the jury comment about the institute.
The Wilkinson Award for residential architecture – houses (new) was awarded to Peter Stutchbury’s cliffside project, Light House, which was described as both “remarkable” and “exquisite”.
“I believe the standard of architecture within NSW is historically high and this year’s award entries certainly support that,” said NSW Chapter President Shaun Carter.
Winners of the 2015 NSW Named Awards and Architecture Awards will progress to the National Architecture Awards.
Here are the winners of each category.
