AIA National Architecture AwardsNovember 2017
We are thrilled to announce 100 Harris Street received a Heritage Award at the Australian Institute of Architects' (AIA) National Architecture Awards. Held in Canberra this year, Ken Maher, jury chair and immediate past president of the Australian Institute of Architects said the projects entered into the 2017 awards were “truly exceptional work” and that the process of judging them was filled with an “unspoken shared sense of joy and admiration.”
100 Harris Street represents the adaptive re-use of an old wool store, making way for commercial offices in design and technology across 6 levels.
The project brief was to reimagine the building as an active and dynamic office space, delivering new vertical transportation and emergency egress and to incorporate an atrium which would deliver light deep into the massive 4,500 sqm footprint.
983 entries were received this year, making it the largest field of entries in the almost four-decade-long history of the National Architecture Awards. In all, 72 projects were shortlisted, 44 receiving awards and commendations across 14 categories.
