The Australian Institute of Architects has announced the winners of the 2018 NSW Architecture Awards.

This year’s awards have seen the first ever recipient of the newly introduced NSW Architecture Medallion, which went to the Joynton Avenue Creative Precinct by Peter Stutchbury Architecture in association with Design 5 - Architects for City of Sydney.

The centre opened to the public in May, and brought a much-needed green heart to the rapidly developing Green Square precinct in Sydney.

Andrew Nimmo, NSW chapter president, said, “There were several very strong contenders for the Medallion. Ultimately, the jury chose a very worthy project.” 

The centre also won the Greenway Prize for Heritage and awards in the Public Architecture and Sustainable Architecture categories. Peter Stutchbury Architects was also celebrated for its Cabbage Tree House, which won the Wilkinson Award for Residential Architecture Houses (New).

Elsewhere, the Punchbowl Mosque by Candalepas Architects took home the Sulman Medal for Public Architecture, while the timber-framed International House Sydney in Barangaroo by Tzannes recieved the Sir Arthur G. Stephenson Award for Commercial Architecture.

“The NSW Architecture Awards are a celebration of design excellence,” said Nimmo. “Although they are unquestionably essential to its emergence, the realisation of design excellence depends on more than the architect’s talent and industry.”

“Procurement – the ways in which and conditions under which an architect is engaged – plays a critical part in ensuring design excellence is brought to life.

“In recognising many of the winners tonight we are celebrating what good procurement practice can mean for architects, clients and for the wider community: beautiful, functional, holistically sustainable environments for living, working, learning, healing and culture.”

Projects that recieved a named award or award at the NSW Architecture Awards will be considered for the National Architecture Awards, to be announced in Melbourne in November.
