State's Best Designs Recognised At The 2015 NSW Architecture Awards

The 2015 winners of the Australian Institute of Architects' NSW Architecture Awards have been announced.

From a cliff-hugging home to one of the country's largest medical research facilities the awarded projects represent NSW's best new architecture across 12 categories including Commercial Architecture, Urban Design, Interior Architecture, Residential Architecture, Heritage (conservation) and Public Architecture.

The State's most prestigious award, the Sulman Medal for Public Architecture, went to Westmead Millenium Institute by BVN for successfully bringing together staff from six cities within a "singular place of calm engagement".

"This is a project where every aspect has been considered. The sensitivity and deftness of this consideration has transformed the building's logic into an uplifting and inspiring environment for collaboration and research," the jury said.

Adaptive reuse projects were the big winners on the night picking up accolades in several categories including Sustainable Architecture and Commercial Architecture, demonstrating the value and opportunities of giving existing building new life.
