The Beach Box (Buddina) – OGE Group Architects

Jury Citation

The utilization of “once used” shipping containers provides a robust and cost effective opportunity to re-engage with the beach culture and mixed use zoning of Buddina. The grouping provides separate private zones with pop outs for greater internal widths, linking with decks and courtyards and a simple skillion roof over entry referencing modest beach house vernacular. This playful use of containers, engages simple yet appropriate interiors and integration with the landscape. However, its power lies in the way it engages with the street and greater public domain through blurred internal/external and public/private boundaries, street furniture and through its honest and engaging presentation.

Region Project of the Year

Post WW2 Development on the Coast and the Moffat Beach Pilot Study (Moffat Beach) – Coordinated by Roger Todd Architect

Jury Citation

It is hoped this unique study and website will alert council, architects, building designers, town planners and the general public to the long term advantages in better conservation of post-World War 2 heritage. It provides inspiration for new works and adaptive reuse and a platform to continue recording built history and heritage

Enduring Architecture Prize

Syrenuse (Mooloolaba) – Noel Robinson Architects

Jury Citation

Syrenuse apartments by Noel Robinson Architects was built in 1981. Its innovative slab and 6 x 6 grid meant the slender structure could provide fire protection while allowing full height glazing and connection to its view and aspect. Its organic form marked Mooloolaba as a contemporary destination at the time and it remains a benchmark for mid-high rise development.
