2019 Newcastle Architecture Awards

The Australian Institute of Architects announced the winners of the 2019 Newcastle Architecture Awards on 21 March.

The top prize in the program, the Newcastle Jury Prize, went to Chrofi Architects with McGregor Coxall for the Maitland Riverlink, a grand arch in the Lower Hunter Valley town that the jury described as “just meant to be.” The project also took home the Awards for Public Architecture and Urban Design.

Elsewhere, EJE Architecture won two awards in the Heritage Architecture category for the Newcastle Signal Box and The Station, while SHAC also won two awards, with St Pius X High School Library picking up awards in Educational Architecture and the Colorbond Award for Steel Architecture.

Jury chair Georgina Wilson said the entries in the 2019 program were “‘a testament to the local architects and community.

“It was wonderful to witness the energy, commitment and ambition of the community towards achieving great imaginative outcomes for the built environment of this area.’”

NSW chapter president Kathryn Loseby, who sat on the jurym said “Greater Newcastle will continue to be an exciting place to watch into the future.”

The award winners are now eligible for the NSW Architecture Awards, which will be announced later in 2019.
