Public Architecture Award
‘The success of the elegant new architecture, with its soft metallic sheen, airy volumes and crisp titanium detailing, lies in its distinctive yet productive cooperation with the materiality, form and use history of its heritage partner. Notably no part of the heritage building has been erased or obscured, rather it provides a counterpoise to the new.’ - Jury citation

Bayshore Park Underpass
Design Award winner for Special Category (Others)
‘The photographs give little clue to the absolute joy of the place, which the jury panel experienced. The project is rhythmic and free-flowing, reflective of its site; a tree-lined stretch of East Coast Park that is teeming with activity. The judges applaud the project for transforming a utilitarian underpass, into architecture of significance that is fun and joyful. The architect’s carefully composed materials render a distinctive character and spatial atmosphere to a usual infrastructural building.’ - Jury citation
