    Community engagement was a strong theme across the winning projects at the Australian Institute of Architects’ 2016 NT Architecture Awards which were announced in Darwin on Friday 24 June.

    A sustainable resort project by Troppo Architects, and an innovative Indigenous learning centre by Hames Sharley were two such projects that were recognised on the night for their commitment to developing relationships with the community through architecture.

    Troppo’s Anbinik Kakadu Resort received the Tracy Memorial Award and the Peter Dermoudy Award for Commercial Architecture, the project, which was built on a shoestring and incorporates recycled and scavenged materials, not only provides a more distinctive visitor experience for tourists but also provides sustainable employment opportunities for the local Indigenous development team.

    Similarly, The Michael Long Learning & Leadership Centre by Hames Sharley, is another example of a project focused on community benefit, received the Indigenous Community Award and an Award for Educational Architecture.

    The centre was developed by Michael Long and the Northern Territory AFL through joint community funding to provide additional facilities in the Northern Territory for the development of footballers and the community. The vision for the centre is to provide the necessary skills to young Territorians before they ’take flight’ onto the football field, or into adult life in general.

    NT Chapter President, Andrew Broffman, congratulated the award winners and entrants on their commitment to design quality, while urging the broader industry to invest more in the areas of multi-residential housing and remote Indigenous communities.

    “This year’s entrants have demonstrated the possibilities of good architecture, with exemplary work in the commercial sector, in research and education, in sport and recreation, and in community development and residential renovations,” he says.

    “A number of this year’s winners have proved the importance of community engagement, but more needs to be done to widen the reach of quality design in Indigenous communities and in inner-city multi-residential areas.”

    The following is a full list of 2016 Northern Territory Architecture Award winners. Named Award and Architecture Award winners go on to compete in the National Architecture Awards, announced in November.
