Victoria's best building design projects were recognised at the Designers Association of Victoria (BDAV)'s 20th BDAV Building Design Awards over the weekend.

Presented by Australia’s largest industry association representing building designers, the Awards showcased creativity and excellence across a wide range of categories including: residential design, interior design, heritage conservation, energy efficient design and non-residential design.

The most prestigious award went to Designers By Nature, whose spectacular residential project, ‘Coastal Exposure’, situated atop a Port Fairy sand dune was recognised as Building Design of the Year (feature image and below).

“Entries this year were once again of the highest quality and the judging panel were extremely impressed by innovation and creative thinking invested in each individual project,” Mr McDonald said.

“It once again proves why Victorian building designers are leaders in creating exceptional designs, and are worthy of consideration by anyone looking to build or renovate their home or commercial projects.”

A selection of winning projects will now be shortlisted for the National Building Design Awards in October 2015.

Award-winning projects will also be featured in this year’s Winning Design magazine, a popular publication for Victorians interested in home build and renovation. The new edition will be on-sale in newsagencies from August 2015.
