As a nod to the growing industry commitment to advancing good design, an incredible 56 unique projects entered the annual Building Design Awards for 2019.
Celebrating its 24th year, the 2019 Awards showcased the best residential, interior, sustainable, heritage conservation, excellence in use of materials and non-residential design projects from Design Matters (formerly known as Building Designers Association of Victoria) members across Victoria and beyond.
Design Matters President Dominique Hunter believes the Awards are vital for the industry to encourage excellence and performance as it gives designers a high standard to work towards.
“We’re proud to showcase and acknowledge the importance of building design, both within our professional community and across the wider community of those we serve with good design,” said Ms Hunter.
Set in the Great Hall of the NGV, famous for its stunning stained glass ceiling by Leonard French, the gala night was not just a glamourous awards ceremony, but also a great networking event with members and industry peers all coming together to catch up and celebrate.
The evenings ceremonies also celebrated the works from emerging designers and the People’s Choice Award, which welcomes the public to vote for their favourite design project. It was also a great honor to recognise seven members for their 25 years of membership of the Association.
Congratulations to all our winners who are profiled in our Awarded Magazine.
