    Four projects from the Tonsley redevelopment won seven awards across diverse categories at the 2016 South Australian Architecture Awards announced recently in Adelaide.

    The diversity of projects being undertaken by architects in South Australia was on full display at the Australian Institute of Architects’ 2016 SA Architecture Awards held recently at the 2015 architecture award-winning Adelaide Oval.

    The Tonsley redevelopment, an education, research and business hub, drew considerable attention on awards night with four projects taking home seven awards across education, heritage, commercial, sustainability and urban design, cementing the site as a ‘unique place with a strong identity for South Australia to celebrate its manufacturing history’.

    The role of architects Woods Bagot and Tridente in deciding to retain the Main Assembly Building (MAB) structure and surrounding building pods along with vibrant urban spaces designed by Oxigen, "is testament to both the vision of the client, the skills and collaboration of the designers and the urban design guidelines developed for the site," the jury said. The project won awards in Heritage and Sustainable Architecture categories.

    South Australia’s Drill Core Reference Library by Thomson Rossi, which provides an important gateway to the huge 61-hectare Tonsley site, won the award in the Commercial Architecture category.

    The coveted Jack McConnell Award for Public Architecture was awarded to the Stretton Centre by Hassell, with the jury praising it as "an architecturally accomplished focal point for the wider northern suburbs community". Hassell also won the Dr John Mayfield Award for Educational Architecture for their work on the Flinders University building at Tonsley.

    Commendations were given out for various projects in the public realm including Henley Square Remade by TCL with Troppo Architects, Glenunga Community Hub by Greenway Architects and the Zoos SA Nature's Play Ground by Phillips/Pilkington Architects and WAX Design, which also won the community’s vote for the City of Adelaide Prize People’s Choice Award.

    The Keith Neighbour Award for Commercial Architecture and David Saunders Award for Heritage went to the new technology incubator, Base 64 in Kent Town designed by Williams Burton Leopardi within a heritage building.

    The New Houses category saw five projects being recognised with the honours’ list led by the West End Residence in Adelaide designed by Ashley Halliday Architects. The entry won the John S Chappel Award for Residential Architecture – Houses (New).

    Khab Architects’ Veil and Mortar, described by the jury as ‘a playful and dramatic addition to a symmetrical cottage’, was awarded the top honour for Residential Architecture – Houses (Alterations and Additions), the John Schenk Award.

    The Small Project category celebrates areas of design that may be traditionally overlooked ranging from pavilions and shelters, to public toilets. A 10sqm home study addition by Grieve Gillett Anderson, which received the top Marjorie Simpson Award for Small Project Architecture, was described by the jury as a project that ‘embodies a real joy in architectural outcomes and contributes to a broader approach to residential design’.

    The Jack Cheesman Award for Enduring Architecture was given to the South Australian Forensic Science Centre by the SA Public Buildings Department. An honour reserved for significant buildings over 25 years, the award recognised the centre as a distinguished example of late Australian brutalism.

    Projects that received a Named Award or Award are now in the running for the National Architecture Awards, to be announced in November.
