2019 NSW Country Division Awards

The Australian Institute of Architects has revealed the winners of the 2019 edition of the NSW Country Division Awards.

The top award in the program, the James Barnet award, went to Takt Studio for its Cloud House in Bowral. The house was recognized in a number of categories, and won awards in the Residential Architecture – Houses (New), an honour it shared with another Takt Studio project, Blade House.

Jury chair Virginia Wong-See, of Architecture at Altitude, said “The highly crafted project offers a legacy for future generations. With exceptional craftsmanship the building is designed to age graciously, timeless in its aesthetic.”

Other winners included Ian Sercome Architect, which won the award for Public Architecture for the Tuncurry Resource Recovery Centre in Forster.

“The centre addressed the ideas of sustainability and recycling both during construction and through education, helping the Mid-Coast Council in Forster work towards a zero-waste target,” said See.

Katherine Loseby, president of the NSW chapter of the Institute, said, “Regional architects make a significant contribution not only to the profession but more importantly in the vital role they play in creating local designs that support more sustainable and connected communities.”
