The winners of the 2018 City of Port Phillip Design and Development Awards, which honour the best projects across much of Melbourne’s inner south, have been revealed. The City of Port Phillip includes the suburbs of South Melbourne, Albert Park, Middle Park, St Kilda, Balaclava and Elwood.

The awards announcement have this year been held in conjunction with Melbourne Design Week.

Mayor Bernadene Voss sad, “This year’s Design Week theme, ‘Design Effects,’ recognizes the importance of design excellence and thoughtful development in balancing growth and maintaining the unique character of diverse and distinctive neighbourhoods.

“I can’t think of a more relevant theme for Port Phillip as we are very proud of our much-loved neighbourhoods and have pledged in our long-term vision to do our utmost to keep our City’s character as Port Phillip continues to grow.”

Voss selected Oculus and the City of Port Phillip’s Maritime Cove Community Park for the Mayor’s Choice Award. The project also won the award for place making.

Architecture-designed house on a tiny 48-square-metre site in Albert Park was jointly awarded the Residential Dwelling – Alteration or New Build category with St Kilda Mixed-Use House by DDB Design Development and Building with Matt Gibson Architecture and Design. The Albert Park College Environmental Arts Hub by Six Degrees Architects was awarded in the non-residential category.

The jury was chaired by Donald Bates (LAB Architecture Studio) and comprised Shelley Penn (Shelley Penn Architect) and Port Phillip councillors David Brand, Katherine Copsey and Dick Gross.
