Hames Sharley Architects picked up three awards at the recent Australian Institute of Architects’ (AIA) WA Architecture Awards.

The Hames Sharley-designed Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research North was recognised as Western Australia’s most renowned building for 2014 in Public Architecture, with the project winning the Jeffrey Howlett Award. The building also won Hames Sharley an Architecture Award in the interior architecture category.

Both awards were presented to Director James Edwards, who led the design team on the project.

The third honour of the evening for Hames Sharley came in the form of The Wallace Greenham Award for Sustainable Architecture for the design of Fiona Stanley Hospital, a design collaborative between firms Hames Sharley, Hassel and Silver Thomas Hanley architects.

The Wallace Greenham Award is considered the highest sustainable architecture award, and recognises the project selected by the jury as the architecture project that has excelled in terms of environmental sustainability. The Fiona Stanley Hospital design collaboration also received a commendation award in the Urban Design category.

Seven of Hames Sharley’s architectural projects were nominated in varying categories for the WA AIA Awards.

All Western Australian Named and Architecture Award winners will progress to the Institute’s National Awards, for adjudication under the National Architecture Awards program to be held in November.
