    The Australian Institute of Architects’ 2016 WA Architecture Awards saw two city projects designed by Kerry Hill Architects win the highest overall honour, the George Temple Poole Award.

    Honouring excellence in the design and construction industry, the Awards were held on Friday, July 1 at Crown Perth’s Grand Ballroom. The prestigious George Temple Poole Award is presented each year to the project judged worthiest of all award winners across all categories. This year was the first time in the history of the WA Architecture Awards that two projects, the City of Perth Library and Public Plaza and the State Buildings, were given the top honour.

    Both award-winning projects were designed by Kerry Hill Architects, with Palassis Architects as heritage architects on the State Buildings project. The jury decided to give a joint award since they felt both entries were exceptional works.

    According to the jury, “Whilst both projects are very different in their own separate ways, they are both innovative, highly rigorous and incredibly strong in their design approach. They deliver jointly and individually an incredibly rare and high order of public realm and civic amenity, which will be enjoyed by people of all ages for a very long time.”

    Both projects also won additional awards apart from the George Temple Poole Award. While the City of Perth Library and Public Plaza also won the The Jeffrey Howlett Award for Public Architecture and a Commendation in the Interior Architecture category, the State Buildings took out The Margaret Pitt Morison Award for Heritage and the Colorbond Award for Steel Architecture.

    Notable award winners on the night also included the iconic Perth Concert Hall by Howlett and Bailey Architects, which won the Enduring Architecture Award. Now in its second year, the award recognises projects that have withstood the test of time and remain important in a contemporary context; the award was renamed this year to recognise the work of long-serving public works architect, Richard Roach Jewell.

    Philip Griffiths, WA President, Australian Institute of Architects explained that Jewell was responsible for many prominent buildings built in the mid-19th century, including The Deanery, the original Perth Railway Station, and the east and west wings of the State Buildings. He added that it was very fitting to dedicate the Enduring Architecture Award to Jewell’s important work, much of which still stands today.

    All Western Australian Named and Architecture Award winners will progress to the Australian Institute of Architects National Awards to be judged against the very best architectural works in the country.
