Winners revealed: 2019 National Trust Heritage Awards

The NSW branch of the National Trust of Australia has announced the winners of the 2019 National Trust Heritage Awards in Sydney.

The winners of the 25th edition of the awards program are spread across a range of categories that include built works, restoration projects and publications.

“For quarter of a century, The National Trust (NSW) has recognised and awarded individuals and organisations conserving, protecting and interpreting heritage,” said Brian Powyer, president of the National Trust (NSW).

“We look forward to this event every year as it provides us with the opportunity to share with everyone in New South Wales why heritage is so important and to recognise the dedicated organisations and individuals who work tirelessly and employ their extraordinary talents and skills to ensure that heritage is protected and shared with many generations to come.”

Among the winners is the refurbishment of Sydney’s Anzac Memorial to a design by practice Johnson Pilton Walker and the NSW Government Architect’s Office that draws on unfinished elements of the original 1930s project, designed by architect Bruce Dellit.

Elsewhere, the Save Our Sirius group, which mounted a furious defense of the Tao Gofers-designed Sirius tower block in The Rocks, was highly commended in the advocacy category.
