3 From the Chapter President From the Jury Chair At the beginning of each year there are calls for entries to one or the other categories in the year s awards program. As architects, we go through the list of recently completed projects to assess their suitability for the program, which category they fall into and, most importantly, their chance of receiving an award. The awards are an important program for many reasons: they allow architects to engage with others in the profession through a process of peer review; they set a standard for which future architects can aspire; they reward good quality work; they provide a platform for which the public can engage with; and, they are delivered via a festive event whereby we all get to drink too much and have a good time. The range of entries this year includes: health, education and commercial projects; residential, both new and alterations/ additions; small projects; and, heritage works. There are many projects that have been commissioned by the private sector, including a number of education buildings and several private residences. Surprisingly, of the 58 projects entered this year, there are very few entries commissioned by the ACT Government. Of the four entered, two are open space infrastructure projects and two are buildings: a school building and a boatshed. In recent years there has been a notable lack of governmentsponsored projects. Last year, for example, there was only one government project entered. Compare these figures to previous years and a different picture emerges. Back in 2012, of the 54 entries, 15 were ACT Government projects and in 2011, 11 of the 51 projects entered were government commissions. What can we conclude from these statistics? Has the ACT Government stopped building? Have economic factors contributed to fewer government commissions? Have government projects become privatised? Is it the innate conservatism of government agencies to eschew excellence through excessive budget constraints? Are government projects being procured under contracts whereby the architect s role has been diminished? Not all of these questions can be answered with a simple yes for we know that the government continues to develop public housing projects, both large and small and throughout the city. So, one is left to ask are these projects deemed unworthy of award entry? This leads to another interesting question. What makes a project worthy of being entered? Should we enter only projects that are worthy of an award or as a means of showcasing our own work? Are projects that highlight environmentally sustainable principles, social consciousness and social change worthy of awards in their own right, or do they need to be relegated to special categories? Are aesthetics and spatial congeniality the main factors that are rewarded in architectural critique? As architects we strive for excellence in improving the built environment. In a rapidly urbanising world, our profession is at a critical point to ensure that new buildings and infrastructure improves the lives of people and the environment. We can no longer conceive of ourselves as a profession that only meets the needs of the elite. Rapid development driven by a growing global population is simultaneously driving urban sprawl and density, both of which are underpinned by a requirement for more and affordable housing. On a planet that is now stretched for resources, polluted and undergoing climatic changes brought about by human consumption, the building industry will play an important role in the future of planetary health. We need to change our way of thinking about what projects might be worthy of reward. There will always be a place for superbly crafted individual bespoke dwellings, but there also needs to be more space allowed for buildings perceived to be less glamorous. As government sponsored projects are set to become more prevalent in Canberra s burgeoning urban environment, it is time to better recognise and reward well-conceived public housing projects and public education buildings. We need to revisit the importance of our public building and our responsibility to support our community and the environment. These important projects require adequate funding to ensure that they are spatially well conceived, aesthetically appealing, environmental sustainability, well crafted and comfortable, and they can only achieve these outcomes if they have been designed by a professional, suitably trained in architectural design. Philip Leeson, FRAIA ACT Chapter President A record number of 58 entries into the 2018 ACT Architecture Awards is an encouraging sign of growth and commitment to innovative high-quality outcomes in our region. Our industry continues to have a positive impact on the local built environment and this year we have seen architects engaging in the delivery of projects with such diversity in scale and program and taking on roles of a nontraditional nature. From a pop-out bay window, to pop-up urban village, the jury was rewarded with an incredible selection of projects to explore. The jury process was demanding, yet the team managed to complete the assessment process with enthusiasm, vibrant discussion, respectfulness, and humour. I d like to think that we were the dream team six uniquely different people from varied backgrounds, project experiences, and, dare I say it, generations, coming together with one passion; excellence in design. Such diversity of character allowed a robust process and confidence that each project was assessed from every angle; no stone left unturned. The outcome was a unanimous selection of projects in each category, with equality in the decision making. I extend my unfeigned thanks to the jury members. Kerstin Thompson, our interstate juror, was so incredibly generous with her time and continually reminded us of how remarkable our city really is. Rachael Coghlan, our lay juror, was acutely aware of the importance of design innovation and pushed us to think divergently. Joanna Nelson and Alastair MacCallum provided great wisdom on the challenges faced in the current context, from both small and large-scale practice and project type perspectives. Yuri Leong Maish, our emerging professional, timekeeper, and navigator, was also on the pulse with knowledge on modern trends and technologies, and difficult procurement pathways endured in the sculpting of the projects. Every year our awards program runs smoothly thanks to the significant efforts of the ACT Chapter and National Awards staff. Leanne, Francesca, Yvette, and Mai have all exceeded expectations in the delivery of the program and managed to keep us on time and on track; a huge accomplishment, given the number of entries this year. It is such a joy, and an honour, to visit a broad spectrum of projects and see the incredible results produced by immensely talented and dedicated design teams. In every project there was a moment of sheer brilliance, and everyone involved in the process should be immensely proud of their work. This extends to the owners and the builders, for without them these projects would simply not exist. The generosity found on site was heart-warming, and we heard countless accounts on how valuable the design team was to realising their vision. Restoring, repurposing, and reinvigorating singular buildings and precincts was a common, and welcome, thread this year. It was evident from our visits that exceptional design outcomes are achieved through reflection on the past and scrutiny of the context. Overlayed with the delivery of spaces that were attuned to human scale, the projects felt warm, inviting, and embedded in the landscape and culture of our city. Our greatest challenge was in the selection of the Canberra Medallion from a shortlist of highly accomplished and awarded projects. The medallion goes to a building of national significance that orchestrated a program of remarkable complexity into a series of rich open-feeling workspaces and specialist laboratories that have engendered collaboration and, in doing so, delivered demonstrable beneficial societal change within the organisation and its work. A rethinking of the challenges with building security and scale has resulted in a seemingly permeable building with high levels of intimacy and personalisation. We thank all entrants, and their project teams, for continually setting the highest of standards in architecture within our community and congratulate all awards winners. Rob Henry RAIA 2018 ACT Jury Chair From the Principal Partner BlueScope is proud to celebrate another year as the Principal Partner of the Australian Institute of Architects.

President s Medal Harold ( Hal ) Guida Guida Moseley Brown Architects Hal Guida s journey in life and architecture reads like few others. From his education at Pasadena City College and Arizona State University, where he learned to resolve design problems through rigorous examinations in drawing, to the heady swirl of UCLA and a Master of Architecture in Urban Design under Denise Scott Brown and Robert Venturi, to a partnership with Mitchell/Giurgola Architects in Philadelphia, to his arrival in Canberra as design coordinator of Parliament House, to the ensuing thirty-year career in the national capital as design director with award-winning firms Mitchell Giurgola and Thorp and its successor, Guida Moseley Brown, the path followed by Hal is that of a passionate architect wholly committed to the advancement of his profession. Throughout these years Hal has sought to create better environments and a better society through architecture. His designs transcend the traditional notion of architecture as individual edifice, to emphasise public space and landscape. Hal has nurtured projects across the broadest spectrum of architectural types, and in myriad locations: from small projects through to urban design, from private to public realms; a diaspora of architectural excellence scattered throughout Australia, South-East Asia, China, the Middle East and the Pacific. Such success would not have been possible without Hal s unique abilities: a holistic and reflective approach to his craft, a strong understanding of place, and an ability to reconcile myriad factors including environmental, cultural, social and historical. Hal s contribution to his adopted city is immeasurable. His portfolio includes some of the ACT s most noteworthy buildings, many of them award-winning. He has served in numerous advisory and pedagogical roles: professional councils, committees, juries, an Adjunct Professorship in Architecture at the University of Canberra. Through his roles as design director and teacher, and his innate generosity of spirit, Hal has inspired generations of local architects. I am delighted to award the 2018 President s Medal to Hal Guida. 8 9

Jury Philip Leeson FRAIA (Jury Chair) Philip Leeson Architects ACT Chapter President Australian Institute of Architects Jessica De Rome RAIA 2018 ACT Emerging Architect Prize recipient Lester Yao Stewart Architecture ACT EmAGN Chair James Daley Architectural Specification, AWS Sponsor representative Architectural Window Systems is the proud partner of the Emerging Architect Prize Lifetime Contribution Prize Robert Foster Robert Foster ( ) was an iconic designer and silversmith who continues to be revered and admired for his sculptural installations. His work is held in major Australian and international collections. His many art in architecture commissions include: The Journey (2010): A spectacular group of ossolites installed in the foyer of ActewAGL headquarters. 37 major sculptural forms emerge from the polished concrete floor to become sinuous light-filled shapes programmed to create dramatic sequences of light, colour and movement. Blue Mantle (2013): An open spherical work located in the Cox Humphries Moss designed Radford Senior School building. The sculpture allows you to look through to the outside to highlight the real world that surrounds us and reminds us of the fragile and miraculous nature of our world and lives. Mackenzie s Beach House (2016): Robert s final work was a collaboration with architect Tony Trobe for a new residential project at Mackenzie s beach, NSW, which resulted in the integration of vibrant red anodised folded panels for kitchen cabinet doors, and a carefully crafted sculptural frame to house locally sourced pebbles that blur the boundary between indoor and outdoor spaces. Throughout his career, Robert collaborated with architects on multiple projects, both private and public. His open and creative approach to architectural installations succeeded because he was a natural collaborator and problem solver, always courageous to experiment across disciplines and materials with an open mind and generous heart. This prize acknowledges Robert s commitment to collaboration throughout his career, setting the bar for art and architecture

8 Canberra Medallion Australian Federal Police Forensics and Data Centre HASSELL Despite an absence of neighbours and a necessarily restricted access scenario, the new AFP forensics facility creates a vibrant and openfeeling workplace community at the foothill of Mt Majura. An ambitious rethink of the typically cellular and segregated organisation of such highly secured facilities, the architecture structures the complex program into a series of lateral bands. These are arranged north south, from least to most secured, and linked by a central spine. Together with their visual transparency, the bands successfully increase the interface between contrasting parts of functional areas: general work areas with specialist labs, separated and controlled ones with those more open and communal. The overlapping of activities and groups is particularly evident within the light filled atrium spaces and the front café. These breakout spaces appear to collect everyone from across the various departments, to foster the intended intelligence sharing and exchange. The programmatic bands are also expressed on the building s exterior, serrating its considerable length to appear as a series of small buildings. Fingers of garden cleave between these so that the interior intermingles with the landscape within a series of courtyards. They bring a restorative and calm quality to the workplace and establish a lush foreground to the dramatic and beautifully framed views of the impressive indigenous landscape beyond. Photographer: Christopher Frederick Jones A varied palette couples glassiness with the warmth and texture of Australian timber creating an interplay of light and dark, transparency and opacity in support of functional needs. This brief could so easily have succumbed to an explicitly defensive architecture. Instead, the Forensics and Data Centre extracts generosity and openness from a highly sensitive program to engender a collaborative and collegiate workplace and find a welcome ease of fit between organisation and built form.

9 The Romaldo Giurgola Award for Public Architecture Synergy BVN X marks the spot for Synergy, a new research facility for CSIRO s Black Mountain consolidation project. The building is expressed in two parts: a laboratory wing with generous floor to floor heights and an x-shaped plan for workspaces. The vertically stacked program within each of these parts is connected via a ramp that circulates around a triangular and light-filled void in the X: a superb and dynamic space that also provides opportunities for more informal moments of exchange between researchers and performs as a chimney for the natural ventilation of the facility. The fanning of the X plan fosters research clusters and maximises the extent of perimeter workspaces with direct views out to the Black Mountain landscape. Inside and out, the architecture draws upon the landscape for inspiration and as workplace enticement. Colours extracted from this, especially the local scribbly gum s bark, create the palette applied to the exterior shading system. Comprising perforated anodised louvres in a variety of colours, it filters sunlight without interrupting views from the interior and gives the building a distinctive visage that is both delicate and striking. Synergy is architecturally finessed. Its clear palette, vibrant light, high level of interior amenity and excellent ESD credentials (that are embedded in and exploited for architectural beauty) yields a workplace that seeks to restore the spirits and wellbeing of a revered organisation.

10 Award for Public Architecture St Christopher s Precinct Cox Architecture St Christopher s Precinct draws together formerly scattered functions of the Diocese into one building, placed centrally on a prominent site. The new public building comfortably sits between the prominent 1927 Cathedral and new residential apartments. The three-storey public building accommodates the parish hall and bookshop on the ground level, with other diocesan departments and the bishop s suite on the upper levels, and car parking, archives and services located in the basement. Each frontage is responsive to adjacent conditions, with key dimensions, datum lines and proportions matching those of the cathedral. The primary frontage, facing the cathedral, is distinguished by a concave glazed front entry, derived from the unbuilt apse planned for the rear wall of the cathedral a gentle and welcoming inflection. Polished and honed concrete blade side walls create a strong closed volume, while contrasting glazed walls at ends open to views of the Cathedral to the south and courtyard to the north. Commendation for Public Architecture High Commission of Samoa in Australia Cox Architecture The Samoan High Commission, a distinctly white building in the suburb s muted bush surrounds, treads a careful line between the vernacular and the colonial, and between cultural origin and adopted homeland in its figuration, use of materials and construction methods. Arranged laterally across the site and within terraced landscapes are three buildings. Linked by a central spine, they orchestrate a path from the most public areas the fale as reception and meeting room and the Chancery to the most private the two-storey residence. Of particular note is the attention to material choices and details to achieve an ease of flow from inside the fale to the adjacent terrace and to respectfully intermingle local use of contemporary steel construction with longstanding Samoan crafts of the afa woven from coconut fibre. External materials are carried through into the central glazed atrium, effectively continuing the external public spaces through the building. Internal planning also focuses on providing many delightful views back to the Cathedral. A particularly well thought out connection is the inclusion of a gated opening to the basement carpark, which is opened for large events, when the square would become a natural gathering space and short cut to the Cathedral

11 The JS Murdoch Award for Heritage Monaro Mall, Canberra Centre Universal Design Studio and Mather Architecture The redevelopment of Monaro Mall pays its respects to the midcentury modernist beginnings of Australia s first fully enclosed shopping mall. Listed for more than thirty years on the ACT register of significant twentieth century architecture, Whitehead and Payne Architects 1963 mall had sadly been obscured by multiple renovations and overshadowed by the expansion of the Canberra Centre in which it resides. An ambitious project, the practice team has successfully and sensitively restored, revealed, reinstated and re-imagined Monaro Mall s heritage values, intent and finishes. Monaro Mall is now a lightfilled and material-rich contemporary retail transformation which demonstrates the powerful potential of adaptive reuse of heritage buildings over demolition.

With a nod to the earlier significance of the Mall, the public realm has been activated with large format windows, street facing shops and cafes and the thoughtful restoration of original marble, breeze blocks and mosaics.

12 The John Andrews Award for Commercial Architecture Australian Federal Police Forensics and Data Centre HASSELL Discretely located in the foothills of Mt Majura, the AFP Forensics and Data Centre is a fascinating response to a complex programme that has effected genuine cultural change within the organisation. The design concept effectively responds to the key briefed elements of transparency, interactivity and adaptability. For the first time, the new building brings together 200 experts in digital, biological and chemical forensics, weapons intelligence and fingerprint and facial identification. It is broken up into multiple communities along a common pedestrian spine which links the northern ceremonial entry to the southern exhibit entry through a variety of animated volumes. The five east-west wings inform the dominant facade expression, cleverly articulating what is a substantial building and ensuring it sits comfortably in its beautiful landscaped setting. These are suggestive of the multiple communities within, including open planned work places and laboratories separated by deep, visuallyconnected courtyards. Photographer: Christopher Frederick Jones Of particular note, the facility has effectively struck a balance between segregated and controlled operational requirements and the aspirations for an open and communal organisation and in doing so resolved complex security, acoustic and containment requirements to create a comfortable, friendly team-based work environment in tune with AFP culture. Indeed, some officers personal collections form part of the building narrative, further personalising a building that somehow downplays its size and complexity. The building meets its brief in terms of environmental performance and project budget and exceeds expectations with cutting edge forensic services to the nation in a striking architectural response.

13 Award for Commercial Architecture Monaro Mall, Canberra Centre Universal Design Studio and Mather Architecture The Monaro Mall redevelopment by Universal Design Studio and Mather Architecture has sought to widen the definition of a shopping mall to become a civic space that meets both commercial and cultural needs. With a desire to create a luxury experience for shoppers, individual arcades of different scales and purposes have been conceived using quality finishes and details including brass, marble, granite, spotted gum, and thoughtful lighting. On the ground level, intimate open retail spaces, which can accommodate small or short-term tenancies, have been introduced into a beauty garden. On level one, a generous arcade with a large central skylight and voids between levels draws shoppers into individual shop-fronts with consistent threshold detailing. The relationship to the broader shopping centre has been better aligned to improve layout and circulation, and to create connections to other parts of the Canberra Centre, Bunda Street, and Petrie Plaza. By embracing the responsibility and opportunity of being the custodian of a significant piece of Canberra s built heritage, the project owners and their dedicated design team have drawn inspiration from iconic mid-century modern references and successfully adapted the mall s existing building structure to become a memorable contemporary retail experience. Photographer: Tom Ross Commendation for Commercial Architecture Dairy Road (3.4) Craig Tan Architects Setting the tempo and character for future development, Dairy Road (3.4) is a surprising adaptive reuse of a large government storage facility into a mixed-use offering which explores the idea of experimental tenanting to a diversified mix of artisans and manufacturers. Through the careful insertion of a series of urban passages, a transition occurs from the apparent anonymity of a bulky good warehouse to an edgy internal streetscape and courtyard full of life and interest. The clever use of scale, geometry, colour, materiality and lighting achieve a warm and tactile quality that personalises what might otherwise be an incongruent mix.

14 The W. Hayward Morris Award for Interior Architecture Monaro Mall, Canberra Centre Universal Design Studio and Mather Architecture Informed by the strong geometry of the original 1963 mall s design heritage, along with modernist and brutalist influences of the era throughout Canberra, the Monaro Mall interiors introduce light, luxuriousness, and connectivity. Internally, the bespoke detailing and selection of high quality timeless finishes of brass, marble, timber and jesmonite, elevate the shopping mall experience. On the ground floor, a beauty garden marketplace mixing retail and beauty services introduces a new and largely open plan retail experience drawing on elegant, custom-made signage, lighting and shop-front display language. Adjacent to the Bunda Street entry, a beautifully detailed and richly crafted timber and stone staircase provides a uniquely warm and cosy transition to the first floor. The first floor is bathed in natural light via well-framed skylight shafts and the restored breeze block wall. Photographer: Dianna Snape In addition to the introduction of natural light, specialised artificial lighting is featured throughout. Barisol light boxes are integrated into the coffered ceiling of repeat triangular pattern, ambient lighting is incorporated into planter boxes, and metal light boxes display shop brands coherently. The exquisite interiors of the Monaro Mall are resultant of thoughtful and innovative planning, the execution of natural light deep into the volume, and the meticulous attention to the finer detailing and interplay of materials and forms.

15 Award for Interior Architecture Award for Interior Architecture St Christopher s Precinct Cox Architecture Synergy BVN St Christopher s Precinct in Manuka includes a vibrant community of residents, office staff, parishioners and clergy in an integrated redevelopment adjacent the Cathedral. The CSIRO s Synergy building has redefined scientific workplaces through an intense consultative process between the client and project team. The diocesan offices are conceived as two parallel wings linked by a glazed central atrium and stairwell that act as an organising element for the various functions within its three storeys. The work environment, accommodating 15 diocesan departments, is fresh and efficient with a clever marriage of traditional and modern materials, colours, art and furnishings gesturing to the past yet looking confidently forward. Importantly, this includes places for the general public for research. The three independent living unit wings are also site and context responsive, framing a central private garden area while taking advantage of views to both street frontages. Through clever planning, apartments are efficient and accessible and benefit from ample light and natural ventilation, usually from two frontages. They are purpose-designed and sensitively detailed for an older demographic, with a sophisticated yet calm materials palette. Particular efforts have been made to control light, privacy and acoustics through a series of integrated fenestration layers. The interior design solution is de-institutionalised and comfortable for all users and residents. The establishment of a porous neighbourhood concept, through the clever placement of meeting rooms and central facilities around work clusters ultimately informed the x-plan and the architectural form of this important and indeed substantial new scientific facility. The need for a contemplative workspace was fulfilled by purposedesigned workstations facilitating concentrated work. The building comprises two components, being workplace and laboratories. These are intrinsically linked, yet each with their own functional performance requirements and associated lighting, ventilation and servicing strategies. In an Australian first, the PC3 laboratory levels are linked through an internal interconnecting stair, further promoting collaborative scientific research. A central atrium space, integral to an innovative natural ventilation system, provides a dramatic arrival experience connecting all levels of the building with its soaring height, stairwells and ramps. Building services are expressed as functional counterpoints to a warm materials and colour palette. Daylight is diffused through suspended sunshade elements that appear porous from the work clusters within. Photographer: John Gollings Synergy is a place of collaborative research and intellectual endeavour appropriately attuned to the natural environment through clever design that manages changing light intensity and the flow of cooling fresh air.

16 Commendation for Interior Architecture Capital Airport Group Office Fitout Cox Architecture Capital Airport Group s new headquarters is an exciting and contemporary workplace, which effectively showcases the multiple company brands while achieving a stronger connectedness to airport operations. The solution makes the most of several obvious constraints. The planning arrangement is cleverly layered with a seamless transition from public to more private work areas and a sense of quality, space and height is achieved through sophisticated detailing of key elements and a materials palette that is tactile and authentic. As a reflection of the organisational culture, an informal lounge purposely intersects with work spaces reinforcing the company s ethos around the balance between work and play.

17 The Sir John Overall Award for Urban Design Throsby Infrastructure Tait Network Much of Australia s demand for new housing is still answered by the creation of new suburbs comprising detached houses standing proud in their autonomy. Throsby is just such a place, but it also holds lessons for how these collections of individual homes can be designed to foster community and neighbourhood. A modest series of interventions extract urban design opportunity from the undisputable need for stormwater infrastructure to create a civic spine of elements. These include pathways, bridges, retaining walls, water bodies and play areas that together, encourage recreation and movement, especially for walkers and cyclists. Photographer: Glen Martin The very real sense of place and much of the delight in Throsby is drawn from its ecology and history. The endangered Superb Parrot, local to the site, is a central motif and has been celebrated in the abstraction of the bird s wing to form balustrade railings on pedestrian and road bridges that intersect the realigned creek, and in the vibrant colour palette of the pergola structure that shades the children s playground and forms a central resting point. From here one can appreciate the integration of the various parts in combination with the surrounding landscape that make Throsby a new suburb of great potential.

18 Award for Urban Design ANU Pop-Up Village OCULUS with Craig Tan Architects Commendation for Urban Design St Christopher s Precinct Cox Architecture Proximate to the construction site that is in the process of becoming the official student union building at ANU is this joyful pop up. While pop ups can be synonymous with a poor fit between program, people and climate, their failings justified by their temporariness, the ANU Student Union Pop Up Village is a lesson in the delights of the informal and contingent, conditions that seem entirely appropriate for the oncampus-life of the student. A scattering of timber framed pavilions as common areas and study halls in combination with smaller food kiosks create a virtual village. The artful placement of these structures yields a balance between large and small, more and less protected interstitial outdoor space that perfectly suits the ebb and flow of students, whether in packs or alone. A timber boardwalk, with integrated bench seating, links the structures together and is integral to the preservation of existing trees. Education architecture is increasingly about maximising the place for incidental exchange whether of the social or intellectual variety as a foundation to learning. In ANU Pop Up we find a successful example of just this, and a treat to enjoy while it lasts. The redevelopment of St Christopher s Precinct provides a wellcrafted assemblage of buildings and public spaces on a prominent island site, serving a mix of residents, office staff, parishioners and clergy. The new relationships created between the site and surrounding streets, and within the site, are successful and invite exploration and appreciation of the heritage listed Cathedral. Thoughtfully scaled and oriented buildings, the careful management of level changes, and uniformity of paving stone works exceptionally well to tie the public spaces together.

19 The Derek Wrigley Award for Sustainable Architecture Synergy BVN Synergy is a research and workplace facility for the CSIRO that has been designed to merge the workplace with its unique setting on the cusp of the Black Mountain bushland, and the city. What appears to be a decorative screen to the facade, is a meticulous transposition of the leaves, barks and colours of the Black Mountain flora, to provide the very contrasting daylight and sun control requirements between workplace and laboratories. The triangulated screen enables views out to the landscape and down to the ground plane, providing a real sense of connection to the Canberra bush. Although for various highly concentrated scientific research, the workplace planning is open plan with meeting rooms and shared facilities located with the circulation atrium to enable a greater sense of community. The planning and inherent integration of sustainable initiatives engenders the transparent and collaborative future of the organisation. Every opening to the facade is thoughtfully considered; whether to permit the workspace to be fully naturally ventilated; to direct views to Canberra icons; or encourage incidental encounter and collaboration. The sheer amount of natural light that is provided to the laboratory spaces, despite their strict environmental requirements, is incredibly refreshing and well executed.

20 Award for Sustainable Architecture RN Robertson Building CCJ Architects The overall experience through the various parts of the ANU Biology school is one of continual, unexpected joy. The complete strip out and refurbishment of this building, originally by Hely and Horne, has transformed this facility to allow its operation and enjoyment for future generations. The upgrades are an exceptional enhancement of the existing materiality and spatial quality of the central atrium space, while providing the flexibility and functionality of modern workplace and research requirements. The extent of natural light and views through the office neighbourhoods and laboratories is an innovation by the design team who persevered through the detail of the existing structure, deep floor plates and low ceiling heights. The considered planning to place glazing and shared zones at the end of corridors brings the tree canopies in to fill the workplace with a strong sense of peace and connection. Commendation for Sustainable Architecture The Link CCJ Architects Located in an isolated bush setting, The Link is an inclusive and welcoming educational space. Currently the Ginninderry Sales Office, it also functions as a retail/community hub and will, in the future, be gifted to the Strathnairn arts community. Working incredibly hard to provide flexible, adaptable spaces, the design extends beyond the ephemeral and considers social and whole-of-life impacts. Providing a lot of interactive and sensory cues around the building, The Link is a pleasing experience and one can t help but feel that you will learn something new with every visit. What was a dark, enclosed and inward-looking building has been rejuvenated into a modern, public facility that can celebrate the activity and collaboration of the future of open workplace culture. The dedication of the Australian National University and CCJ Architects to retain and enhance this exceptional building is a respectful and admirable result; an exemplar of the sustainability considerations for the built environment

21 The Malcolm Moir and Heather Sutherland Award for Residential Architecture Houses (New) Swan Collins Caddaye Architects Seven years in the making, this house is a confident statement of the clients personal success, their collaborative skills and the virtues of patience. Photographer: Stefan Postles The house is an intriguing study in opposites: contemporary status symbols such as the media room and the flamboyant ensuite, contrast with the simple, sublime entry court, and a focus on the elemental fire, water and light. Abundant luxurious and expensive inclusions are similarly balanced by thrifty repurposing of cool room walls, collection of local rock, reuse of concrete waste and absence of air conditioning. The architect s audacious proposal that the new house be placed, not near the existing house on the semi-rural property, but at the edge of the dam has paid off by providing a setting of exceptional poise. On approach, the floating, white rendered house is long and low. The beautifully proportioned entry court leads to an open central space with views in both directions over water. The planning allows equally for private and intimate moments and for large family gatherings. The jury visited when the just completed house was yet to be occupied the clients were overseas, about to return. The house held an air of expectancy a stage set for a fabulous drama about to begin.

22 Award for Residential Architecture Houses (New) Award for Residential Architecture Houses (New) Box House Paul Tilse Architects Inset House Photographer: Stefan Postles Box House replaces half of a two-storey 1950s duplex in Yarralumla, demolished under the ACT Loose Asbestos Removal Program, on a site already unit titled from its rear neighbour. The architect was able to resolve complex siting challenges and convince clients still mourning the loss of their previous home of the opportunities available to them. The jury arrived to several figures seated on a terrace, waving a greeting. The terrace appeared to float above the carefully contoured entrance to a basement garage and was just the right distance from the street to encourage interaction without discomfort. Entering and moving through the house, further opportunities for generous engagement with the street are offered through the street facing kitchen window and carefully curated close and distant views from every room. Clever planning, especially on the main level, allows modestly sized interior spaces to feel open and well connected with useable garden spaces. Flexibility in room uses and the high level of amenity provided in the 140m2 dwelling area offers valuable lessons for infill housing on challenging inner Canberra suburban sites. Photographer: Brett Boardman Thoughtful planning and siting of this new, single storey house for a young family in the new suburb of Wright has resulted in varied and useful interior and exterior spaces with surprising levels of functionality and connectivity to northern light. The house steps down behind the two front rooms and garage, following the site slope. The house differs from its two-storey neighbours by offering not larger, but more flexible and useable outdoors spaces, including a central courtyard. Privacy from neighbours is achieved by carefully positioned windows, with views curated to focus on landscaping and courtyard spaces. The decision to locate the laundry in the garage and to allow for the garage to open up to the central courtyard allows for other functional uses of the garage beyond car storage. Visual connections between rooms on different levels through the use of internal windows, provides welcome long views to the street. Allowing corners of children s bedrooms to open up to living areas, provides generous and flexible options for family interaction. Photographer: Brett Boardman Inset House is a successful exploration in spatial proportion and connectivity to landscape on a compact block. Refreshingly, this family valued quality of space over maximising plot ratio. Photographer: Stefan Postles 42 43

23 Commendation for Residential Architecture Houses (New) Moss River House Cox Architecture Commendation for Residential Architecture Houses (New) Sawtooth House Moss River House, a new farm house near Yass, is poetically anchored to rebuilt remnants of two stone outbuildings, and gains much from this relationship. On approach, the rebuilt stone buildings sit forward of a new glazed link structure that separates them from the new pavilions behind. Practically (this being a farm house), there are several entries, all leading to the glazed link. Internally, contemporary detailing links old and new. The new pavilions are generous in scale and open onto the expansive Yass River aspect. New stone walls anchor the building into its landscape. The result is an elegant approach to living on the land. Sawtooth House is an intelligent design response to the challenge of how to increase density in Canberra s inner suburbs. Designed for an owner builder with a young family and modest budget, the details are less important than the robust idea a distinctive, saw-toothed, windowless brick wall marking the boundary between an existing house and its backyard and a new secondary dwelling. Entering the gate next to the brick wall, a series of private and inviting areas open up, with the brick wall expressed again internally and in a bathing courtyard. Northerly clerestory windows provide openness and a laundry that shares the entry porch is a welcome informality. Photographer: LightStudies Photographer: LightStudies 44 45

24 The Gene Willsford Award for Residential Architecture Houses (Alterations and Additions) Chowne Street House Philip Leeson Architects This restorative project reinvigorates life back into a 1950s gem. Delicately crafted, the Chowne Street House balances the introduction of contemporary living into the existing footprint, while maintaining integrity of form and fenestration. From the street, the house feels untouched. A sympathetic landscape and detailing of new windows pay homage to the original design. The introduction of colour at the entrance sets the scene for a lively exploration in colour throughout the project. A modest extension into an original rear porch allows for the opening up of living spaces and inclusion of a dining space, visually linked to the rear yard. A subdued palette of joinery materials and refurbished lighting allow the owners collection of mid-century furnishings and objet d art to take stage. Minor reconfiguration of the bedroom wing provides a new ensuite to the main bedroom and improves visual privacy through the introduction of slatted screens. Connectivity to the rear garden is via a layering of platforms. The balustrade wall, with integrated artwork by Ham Darroch, draws one down to a generous outdoor dining pavilion. It is the finer details, such as repurposing of original kitchen handles and light fittings, that illustrates awareness of heritage, utmost care in preservation, and commitment to sustainable outcomes that makes this project exceptional.

25 Commendation for Residential Architecture Houses (Alterations and Additions) Puutalo House Commendation for Residential Architecture Houses (Alterations and Additions) TL House Ben Walker Architects Puutalo, a unique prefabricated circa 1948 cottage, has been afforded a new lease of life through a playful reinvention of existing spaces and modest open plan addition over an original verandah structure in the backyard. Internally, new insertions are easily understood with the use of plywood lining. The warmth and craft of material extends into the new wing where a dramatic raked ceiling and bench seat with integrated steps that moderate internal and external levels, offer an unexpected and delightful volumetric experience. Care has been taken in the detailing this project to offer a series of spaces that encourage both quiet contemplation and family living. Photographer: LightStudies Extending into the rear yard of a Curtin two-storey duplex is a generous light filled contemporary open plan living pavilion. A new kitchen successfully navigates the change in orientation and elevation between old and new forms. The existing spaces have been refreshed, with a new entrance and remodelled wet areas drawing from the same material palette. Thermal performance is enhanced with new insulation to the old, and northerly glazing, thermal mass from polished concrete floors and grey brick blade walls, and carefully located openable windows to enhance cross ventilation in the new.

26 Commendation for Residential Architecture Houses (Alterations and Additions) DC House Ben Walker Architects The Sydney Ancher Award for Residential Architecture Multiple Housing St Germain Cox Architecture DC House marries two previously competing architectural expressions the original Blandfordia 5 Housing Precinct heritage listed cottage and a 1990s poorly conceived addition with well executed interventions and remodelling. Reorganisation of functions within the existing footprint delivers an improved spatial sequencing, and connections to the courtyard and established rear garden have been framed by finely detailed black steel windows and French doors. The introduction of an ensuite into an original disjointed sunroom is masterfully executed to preserve the heritage facade, ensure privacy, and capture views into the mature trees. Canberra holds a rich collection of models for medium density living. Adding to this is St Germaine, which forms part of the Campbell 5 Housing Precinct. Exploiting the constraints of a development plan with a prescribed building envelope that stepped from three to six storeys, St Germaine achieves a new and compelling apartment typology, most evident in the apartments to the lower three floors, which extend for the full depth of the site. These are masterfully configured with a north facing satellite living wing separated by an internal courtyard from the southern sleeping one and linked by a generous breezeway hall. All spaces are of handsome proportions with high quality amenity in terms of light and air. The north facing living areas overlook the park and are extended by very large terraces that can be screened for solar and privacy control as required. Every apartment enjoys dual aspect including the more conventional layouts to the upper three floors. The size, layout and range of facilities combined with ample storage targets its market of empty nesters, who are well accommodated. A somewhat stolid exterior belies much light and delight within.

27 Award for Residential Architecture Multiple Housing St Christopher s Precinct Cox Architecture The redevelopment of St Christopher s has introduced a complementary mix of program ecclesiastical, administrative, and residential and compelling urban design to transform this significant site and its relationship to the Manuka neighbourhood. Book ending the northern edge of this newly revitalised precinct is a supportive housing facility that caters for the over-fifty members of the community. Forty-four apartments are organised within three wings around a central courtyard of just the right proportion to balance opportunities for neighbourly connection with individual privacy and to accommodate a calm and restorative landscape. The building s massing, scale, and materiality is sympathetic with the higher density of Canberra Avenue. Photographer: Benjamin Hosking Apartments are generous and well planned, with an ease of flow to large outdoor balconies that deploy screens for solar control, privacy and decorative effect. Interior spaces are warm, inviting and thoughtfully detailed to suit occupant needs. Circulation corridors are light filled and offer framed views of the surrounding landscape. St Christopher s offers a compelling model for housing that integrates homes with social, civic and community space to connect people and place at all stages of life.

28 COLORBOND Award for Steel Architecture Roberts Residence Formi Building Creators This project is a delightful encounter of uniform materiality and colour to experience from a public footpath. A striking Next Generation ZINCALUME steel clad addition to a Radburn precinct house with two distinct front boundaries, consists of new living and master bedroom spaces wrapping around a courtyard containing an existing crab apple tree. What appears at first glance to be a very utilitarian address to the footpath with the ZINCALUME roof and wall elements, the facade is broken up by the central courtyard and bookended by two rainwater tanks. Oversized gutters playfully reference chopsticks and celebrate the path of water to the tanks. The galvanised steel angle gateway entrance structure further embellishes this motif of elements gliding past each other. The vertical Mini Corry ZINCALUME profile adds a fine grain and is cleanly detailed to provide a seamless appearance. The ZINCALUME clad wall that kinks into a floating fence and then terminates with a unique folded gate is poetic and delightful in its crafting.

29 The Cynthia Breheny Award for Small Project Architecture Phased Change House Erin Owens, MAKO Architecture Subtle intervention is key to the success of this project. Phased Change House reconfigures a typical compartmentalised 1960s suburban cottage with poor connectivity to its backyard into a warm and meticulously crafted home. An untouched entry condition disguises the new-found drama within. While the footprint is largely the same, the spaces are now light, open, and heightened by the exposure of original roof trusses over the kitchen/dining area. Photographer: Guthrie Project A modest bay window extension that emerges out from under the original eaveline into the rear yard, holds the kitchen bench, new glazed doorways to the rear deck, and a bathing area. Generous windows have been positioned to maximise sightlines. The muted palette of spotted gum, form ply, raw fibre cement sheet, and grey laminate used throughout the spaces are detailed with delight and evoke homeliness. A splash of colour is delivered through deep blue Pirelli rubber floors and splashbacks. In a context where knock-down rebuild forever homes are increasingly the norm; this project is a reminder that simple repurposing and staging can deliver exceptional, highly sustainable outcomes.

30 Photographer: Glen Martin Award for Small Project Architecture Kingston Boat Sheds Tait Network Located in a prominent location of competing architectural expressionism, the Kingston Boat Sheds manage to recede and restore a sense of calm and human scale to the shoreline. Dispersed along the public waterfront promenade, the four buildings are interconnected by a low retaining wall of the same materiality, which moderates the change in levels and forms a place to sit and watch the nautical action. The use of corten steel, an enduring and resilient material that feels at home in a docklands setting, references earlier structures in the precinct and sets up a strong and unified language for the foreshores public realm. The buildings house services linked to the boat jetties adjacent, including workshops, storage rooms, a shopfront and hire facility, and wet area facilities for users. A consistent and robust form links the buildings, despite the varied functions within. Subtle perforations in cladding conceal services within the volume, allowing the public domain to remain void of visual clutter. The intelligent design has withstood a difficult construction delivery model and the resultant buildings will no doubt withstand the elements and age gracefully in place. Commendation for Small Project Architecture Parents Room, Monaro Mall, Canberra Centre Mather Architecture The Parents Room, located in the Monaro Mall, provides an exemplary experience for its occupants through thoughtful planning and interconnectivity of spaces. The design is culturally sensitive and enables multiple ways to use the space depending on need and child age. The material palette considers both children and parents, is playful yet sophisticated, and defines public and private usage within a compact footprint. Sophisticated detailing ensures the space is easily maintained and is therefore always clean, fresh, and comfortable. There is a sense of homeliness at the Parents Room that makes this facility memorable, unlike its utilitarian predecessors.

31 The Enrico Taglietti Award for Educational Architecture STEM Centre Collins Caddaye Architects STEM Centre is a simple, yet pleasingly articulated building that functions as a collaborative space for all public schools across Canberra. The building positively reads as part of the Caroline Chisolm School Senior Campus village, as well as a standalone public facility. The entry is humbling and dark; providing a striking contrast to the central collaboration space, which is enjoyably light filled with high ceilings, yet of a considered scale suitable for high school students. The internal planning organises around the central collaboration space where movement, noise and action coexist, with its volume and importance reflected in the external form. The carefully considered transparency of the internal spaces is reflective of visible learning philosophies and provide some fun opportunities for students. External windows are strategic to frame views to established Chinese Elms and outdoor learning areas, which provide a real sense of belonging, peace and enjoyment. Utilising a robust and timeless palette of materials, the design and form are thoroughly considered and executed to provide a unique facility providing an enhanced educational environment. Despite the extremely limited budget and constrained design and construct contract, the elegance of this project is an outstanding achievement by Collins Caddaye Architects.

32 Commendation for Educational Architecture The Sir Roy Grounds Award for Enduring Architecture RN Robertson Building CCJ Architects St. Thomas Aquinas Church, Charnwood Mitchell Giugola and Thorp Architects, 1989 This project involved a complete strip out and refurbishment of the existing 1970s building for the Research School of Biology at the ANU. The central atrium is a joyful, welcoming space with newly crafted generous views to laboratories and landscape beyond, linking it with the building s function. Overcoming the constraints of the existing structure, deep floor plates and low ceiling heights, this school has been transformed to be socially enticing and full of natural light, which beautifully celebrates the details and materiality of the original building, for the enduring pleasure of future generations. You are now entering the Old Testament, explained Father Neville Drinkwater. These columns represent the Lost Tribes of Israel. Are you familiar with Divinity theory? We had to admit that none of us on the 2018 Enduring Architecture Award jury were. We were standing in the entrance courtyard to St. Thomas Aquinas Church, tucked away in Charnwood, one of Canberra s northern-most suburbs. The church is another architectural legacy that Romaldo Giurgola of Mitchell Giurgola and Thorp Architects bestowed upon the nation s capital. While Giurgola was putting together the finishing touches to Parliament House, Drinkwater issued him with a challenge. The priest wanted the Italian-born architect to design him a church. And it had to cost no more than $500,000. I was fascinated, Giurgola explained later, by this character who was so straightforward. Up for the challenge, Giurgola relished the opportunities provided by the smaller scale, limited budget, and community-level, collaborative nature of the project. St. Thomas Aquinas Church was built by a parishioner, Cesare De Franceschi. A collection of art and craftwork was co-ordinated by Pamille Berg of Mitchell/Giurgola and Thorp Architects. Opened and blessed by Archbishop Francis Carroll on 2 September 1989, the church was the recipient of a Canberra Medallion for Architectural Excellence in Throughout the design and construction process, a friendship developed between Giurgola and Drinkwater; a bond that endured until the architect s death in Twenty-nine years after it was built, we were visiting the church to consider it for the 2018 Enduring Architecture Award. To be perfectly honest, we were a little underwhelmed at first. From some angles the church appeared to be quite unprepossessing. From Lhotsky Street, the cream brick facade is bland, uncompromising. It is easy to drive past the church: we all did. But once we moved around the edifice, ignoring some unsympathetic additions, we found delight in the modulation of the eastern facade, and in the welcoming gesture of the entry. Photographer:? Photographer: Rachel Jackson In contrast to the exterior, the interior is lively and full of contrasts. There is a clear articulation of structure, space and skin. Ceiling and pews of honeycoloured Australian timbers are complemented by white-painted steel structure, white plastered walls and blue-carpeted floor. Here and there in the variety of fenestration, in the natural lighting and in the accoutrements of the interior can be detected a nod or a wink towards leading architects of the modern movement: Kahn, Corbu, Ando, Botta take your pick. There is a sense of controlled delight; it is clear that Giurgola was having fun. Yet this is a coherent, restrained building of modest architectural artifice: a truly modern church that is more about the scale and life of the suburbs and the local community than it is about any awe-inspiring, architectural statement. St. Thomas Aquinas Church speaks of a unique understanding between architect and client, and represents the work of a master creator at the height of his powers. As such it is a deserving winner of The Sir Roy Grounds for Enduring Architect. Jury David Hobbes RAIA (Jury Chair) Philip Leeson Architects Entering through the glazed timber doors, it started to make sense: this is a building that is all about internal space. We were drawn through a space that was low, compressed. This is the transition from the outside world, the space where parishioners turn off phones, lower voices, clear minds. A few metres further in, the space expands upward and outward. Dramatically.

33 The Pamille Berg Award for Art in Architecture Chowne Street House Philip Leeson Architects Integrating art into architecture is an opportunity for designers from different disciplines to work collaboratively to create something truly unique. This potential has been realised with the inclusion of new work by Canberra-based contemporary artist Ham Darroch at a sensitively fulfilled alteration and addition project of a 1950s modernist house in Campbell. Darroch s abstract painting has been installed on the western face of a new landscape wall that defines a small deck and staircase leading to an outdoor garden room. The work is visible from within and without: the new living and kitchen area of the dwelling looks onto the work, which reinforces the colour scheme selected for the overall project. The painting is a boldly coloured and successful intervention that enlivens the external spaces and effortlessly draws the eye out into the landscape.

34 The Robert Foster Award for Light in Architecture The ACT Chapter Student Medallion Joel Smith The Daryl Jackson Alastair Swayn Graduate Prize Monaro Mall, Canberra Centre Universal Design Studio and Mather Architecture The play of light and dark at Monaro Mall defines space, guides movement and provides intimacy through both natural and artificial light. Generous voids have been cut through previously dark floor plates to allow natural light to penetrate deep into the mall s two storey volume, transforming the retail experience. The light qualities enhance the selection of material and texture: the Barrisol light boxes, integral to the coffered ceiling, complement the geometry of the polished marble and terrazzo floors; the strategic coffered framing of the existing skylight to the first-floor filter daylight down the fluted Jesmonite spandrels; and the restored iconic arched awnings with reflective gold soffits have been uplit to provide a sense of intimate luxury. One striking, unexpected aspect is the refurbishment of the existing glazed breeze-block facade, which provides a double height volume to the Bunda Street entrance and allows a soft, filtered light into the first-floor retail area and affords tree canopy views from within. The overall consideration of planning, views, existing elements, negative space, texture, colour and reflectivity all interlace to create an exceptionally atmospheric experience; where both natural and artificial light celebrate the spaces within, reflective of their scale and function.

Cynthia was awarded the best second year student. During 5th year, Cynthia won an award for an urban planning design for the Hobart suburb centre of Bellerive. For most of her time studying architecture in Tasmania, she was the only female student. Cynthia graduated in In 1969, Cynthia moved to Canberra to work with Dirk Bolt & Associates on Burgmann College at ANU, and later with Roger & Anthony Pegrum on residential projects. In 1971, Cynthia travelled to London where she worked for Ellsworth Sykes Partnership on plans for a YMCA hotel. From 1973 to 1975, Cynthia worked for Kevin Curtin & Partners (now Munns Sly Moore Architects) on several commercial projects. In 1976, Cynthia had her first child (now an architect) and started working on small projects, increasing in number as her family grew up. During this time, the RAIA practice notes and contract documents were invaluable, and the instigation of the Small Practice Group was of great value. In 1987, Cynthia won an award in the New Generation Housing Competition. Cynthia s practice was involved in the design, documentation and contract administration of small projects including houses, a commercial building in Canberra Avenue, extensive alterations and additions to 2 ski lodges, and to hundreds of houses, most of which were in Canberra. One small residential project was shown in an ACTPLA publication exemplifying good building design in single residential low impact development. In 2004, Cynthia s daughter, Zillah Gisz joined her architecture practice where they worked together until Cynthia s retirement in Since retiring Cynthia enjoyed more time watercolour painting, and won the prize for the best children s information book, Inside Canberra, in a children s picture book competition held by the University of Canberra in Cynthia continues to paint and create, and appreciate good architecture during her travels around the world. Cynthia is now the Conservation Officer for the Canberra Bushwalking Club. The Sir Roy Grounds Award for Enduring Architecture Sir Roy Grounds was born on 18 December 1905 at St Kilda, Melbourne. He attended the Melbourne University Architectural Atelier and took night classes at Brighton Technical School, developing an interest in the Bauhaus and architectural modernism. Early in his career, Grounds worked for a variety of employers in Britain, Europe and the United States. Upon his return to Melbourne, he established a partnership with Mewton and became known as the leading Australian exponents of modernism in house design. In 1940 Grounds was registered as an architect. After serving in the Royal Australian Air Force during WWII, and a brief respite from architecture, Grounds became a senior lecturer at the University of Melbourne ( ) in the faculty of architecture and also retained a right of private practice. In 1953 Grounds formed a partnership with Boyd and Romberg. Over the next eight years the firm designed some of the leading modern buildings in Australia. Grounds, with Romberg, oversaw a fanning sound for the Sidney Myer Music Bowl and was commissioned to complete the Australian Academy of Science building (Canberra, ), which won the RAIA Canberra chapter s award (1957) and the Sulman award (1959) and which, in 1984, was nominated for the international register of significant twentieth-century architecture. Other projects in Canberra followed, including the Phytotron (1962) for the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, and the Botany building (1968) at the Australian National University. In 1959, he was selected as the sole commissioned architect for Melbourne s National Art Gallery and Cultural Centre. The National Gallery of Victoria was completed in 1968, and the neighbouring Concert Hall was developed between 1977 and 1981; the State Theatre was finished posthumously in Grounds gained commissions for houses and larger projects: his George Street Cinema Complex in Sydney (1976); the imposing Blackwood Hall at Monash University (1971) and the Wrest Point Casino and hotel complex, Hobart (1973), Grounds enjoyed a reputation as a leader in reshaping Australian architecture under modernist influence and as a traditionalist, and was highly regarded for his work in institutional architecture.
