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

The Darling Building, a refurbishment of a historic building in Adelaide by Williams Burton Leopardi clinched two top awards in the Commercial Architecture and Heritage categories. “An unexpected and exemplar project, the Darling Building tells the story of historic Adelaide commercial life whilst creating an alternative workplace offering within the city,” said the jury. “This brave adaptive re-use of a forgotten building, commonly perceived as worthless, reveals the skill and tenacity of the architect/developer.”

The project was also named winner of the People’s Choice award in the City of Adelaide Prize.

Winners of named awards and awards will proceed to the National Architecture Awards, which will be announced on Thursday 1 November in Melbourne.
