Philip Griffiths receives the Architects Board of WA Board Award

Perth heritage architect Philip Griffiths has received the Architects Board of Western Australia’s annual Board Award for outstanding contribution to the architectural profession.

On presenting the award on 30 November 2011, the chairman of the Architects Board of Western Australia, Bruce Callow, said “Philip’s active participation in the Heritage Council and in working with the communities involved with projects has raised the public awareness of heritage, its value to the community, to the architectural environment and to the profession.”

As a specialist in heritage architecture, Griffiths is responsible for work at Fremantle Prison (Western Australia’s only World Heritage cultural site), the revitalization of the William Square precinct in Northbridge and conservation and rejuvenation projects on Rottnest Island.

At the other end of the scale, Griffiths has embraced small regional projects in country towns, on farms and on station buildings.
