2016 Brisbane Regional Architecture Awards

The Australian Institute of Architects has announced the winners of the 2016 Brisbane Regional Architecture Awards.

The jury awarded a total of 50 regional commendations, with three projects receiving honours across multiple categories.

The jury also awarded two additional honours, the John Dalton Award for Building of the Year and the House of the Year.

Heritage project Bayside Fire Station by Owen Architecture received the night’s highest honour, the John Dalton Award for Building of the Year.

The jury said the Bayside Fire Station was “an elegant response to the original fabric of Wynnum Fire Station. The strong streetscape is maintained by concentrating change to the rear, where a new internal volume inventively makes connection between upper floor and ground integrating the existing outdoor stair and lower floor fire engine bay for family living.”

House of the Year was awarded to House in Hamilton by Phorm Architecture and Design with Tato Architects.

The jury said: “Phorm & Tato reference the Queenslander, but it is not skirted by verandah. The house is a delightful version of the state’s post-war housing, a period of housing rarely a reference for design but it should be. Overhangs are pulled back to a minimum.

“Robust detail makes spaces sized for occupation with patios and porches added. It is not wasteful, it is not based on fashion. It is a house of dialogues, between client, cultures and architects.”

Projects that received a Regional Commendation will progress to the State Architecture Awards to be announced on 24 June.
