2017 Queensland Regional Architecture Awards: Brisbane

The 2017 Brisbane Architecture Awards were announced on Friday 28 April at the Brisbane Convention Centre.

The Australian Institute of Architects Queensland Chapter recognized 35 projects in 10 categories with Regional Commendations. Among them, two received additional honours.

The highest accolade, the John Dalton Award for Building of the Year went to Brisbane Girls Grammar School Research and Learning Centre by M3 Architecture for its “extremely clever and delightful design response in every detail of its delivery and execution, from the streetscape frontage, inclusive of its surrounding natural and heritage context, to the internal collaborative learning environments tucked within a series of connected labyrinths that evoke and stimulate curiosity within its occupation.”

Dornoch Terrace House by James Russell Architect was awarded House of the Year. The jury said the project “enabled interactions of people, place and the environment to be infinitely fine-tuned to the conditions and activities of daily life.” The jury also noted how “construction and spatial experimentation demonstrated sustainability while evoking memories of past occupants and vernacular building traditions.”

All projects recognized will progress to the Queensland State Architecture Awards, to be announced in Brisbane on 23 June.

The full list of winners and regional commendations are:
