    Branko Miletic

    The 32nd Dulux Colour Awards were announced at last night’s gala event held at the National Gallery of Victoria which recognised the most creative and considered use of colour in nine project categories.

    This year boasting more than 300 entries from around Australia and New Zealand combined, the awards also highlighted the impact of colour as an architectural and interior design device.

    In terms of the overall winners, the Fitzroy Crossing Renal Hostel, by Iredale Pedersen Hook Architects, was awarded the Grand Prix, as well as the Commercial Exterior Award, for what the judging panel describes as, “the perfect balance of colour and volume. Colour has been used in a meaningful way, adapted to community and worked into the context of it – it’s truly breathtaking.”

    The judges panel said that the Fitzroy Crossing Renal Hostel was "An exemplary piece of architecture, whose impact is heightened, and even defined by, the considered use of colour, the Fitzroy Crossing Renal Hostel is the clear overall winner of this year’s Grand Prix. The nuanced juxtaposition of contextually inspired hues demonstrates an understanding of the strength of colour and its relevance in the Australian landscape."

    According to Dulux Colour planning and communications manager Andrea Lucena-Orr, “It epitomises the value of our awards program, which recognises the most creative and innovative use of colour in the built environment.”

    In terms of this years’ overall jury, the 32nd Dulux Colour Awards finalists were judged by; Miriam Fanning – Founder and Principal Interior Designer of Mim Design; David Hicks – Director of David Hicks; Katelin Butler – Editor of Houses magazine; David Flack – Founder of Flack Studio; and Murali Bhaskar – Design Director of Boon Goldsmith Bhaskar Brebner Team Architects in New Zealand.
