2014 SA Architecture Awards

Twenty-two projects were recognized at the 2014 SA Architecture Awards by the Australian Institute of Architects, presented at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on 4 July. The big winner on the night was South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) by Woods Bagot, taking five major awards for Public, Commerical, Interior, Sustainable and Steel Architecture. “This project contributes a joyful landmark to Adelaide and operates as a catalyst on a number of levels – for urban regeneration of the precinct and the state, evidencing a step change in attitudes towards both design and research,” commented the jury.

The City of Adelaide Prize for innovation and excellence in enhancing the public realm was unanimously awarded to Café Troppo by Troppo Architects. The jury noted the social conscience and generosity of spirit of this project, saying: “Café Troppo demonstrates the importance of shared public spaces and ground level activity in our inner metropolitan areas, bringing vitality and humanity to our growing neighbourhoods.”

Winning the John S Chappel Award for Residential Architecture – Houses (New) was Goolwa Beach House by Grieve Gillett, praised by the jury as “a bold and somewhat monumental punctuation in its coastal setting”. All named award and architecture award winners will progress to the National Architecture Awards, announced on Thursday 6 November in Darwin.
