The Australian Institute of Architects has announced the winners of the 2017 Queensland Architecture Awards.

A total of 82 projects were under consideration for state honours, with 60 awards and commendations presented and a number of projects received multiple accolades.

M3 Architecture was presented with 10 awards and commendations, including the Robin Dods Award for Residential Architecture – Houses (New) for Cape Tribulation House, which is sited within the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest. The judging panel said, “A disciplined and deep respect for the rainforest drives the holistic approach from siting to occupation.”

 480 Queen Street by BVN took home the Beatrice Hutton Award for Commercial Architecture. The jury praised the project for the “extensive and generous public realm [that] offers the community and tenants memorable experiences guided by themes including linkages with nearby St John’s Cathedral and topographic metaphors referencing the site’s historic condition.”

Sunshine Coast University Hospital, by Architectus Brisbane and HDR Rice Daubney as Sunshine Coast Architects, winner of the F. D. G. Stanley Award for Public Architecture, was lauded by the jury as “an intelligent and elegant public building that strives for local use and social engagement through the clearly defined provision of green corridors, public outdoor spaces and community infrastructure.”

Projects that received named awards and awards are now in the running for the 2017 National Architecture Awards, to be announced in Canberra on Thursday 2 November.
