Sunshine Coast Architecture Awards announces finalists
In the lead up to the Queensland Architecture Awards in June, a smattering of regional projects are being announced as finalists around the state. In the Sunshine Coast Architecture Awards announced this month, 12 of the 22 entries were commended.
OGE Group Architects took out the Gabriel Poole Award for Building of the Year for its The Beach Box house at Buddina. The build utilised shipping containers grouped together, with the property engaging with the street through blurred internal-external boundaries. The Region Project of the Year was awarded to Roger Todd Architect for the studio’s Post-WWII development on the coast and Moffat Beach Pilot Study. The study aims to alert council, architects, builders and town planners to the long-term advantages of conserving post-WWII heritage.
Other architecture firms to receive regional commendations include Tim Bennetton Architects, JMA Architects QLD, Majstorovic Architecture, Bark Design Architects, Owen and Vokes and Peters, Dm2architecture, Fulton Trotter Architects, Robinson Architects, as well as Noel Robinson Architects for its Syrenuse apartments, built in 1981 in Mooloolaba for the Enduring Architecture Prize.
