The restoration of a 1900s shire hall and a modern take on the beach house are two projects that have taken out top honours in the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) Queensland Chapter’s 2009 Regional Architecture awards.

Judging has been completed in four of the seven competition regions: the Sunshine Coast, Darling Downs, Central Queensland and the Gold Coast.

Riddel Architecture took out the 2009 William Hodgen Award for Building of the Year in the Darling Downs for their resurrection of the 80-year-old Warroo Shire Hall in Surat.

“The almost intact nature of the building is testament to how a robust architecture combined with community spirit can create lasting and meaningful social places. This sensitive renovation preserves and enriches this social contract,” says Jury Director Justin O’Neill.

While in the Central Queensland awards the Busby Residence at Yeppoon by Brian Hooper Architects was awarded the 2009 J.W.Wilson Award for Building of the Year.

“The colours, patternation and use of materials is a modern interpretation of the beach house vernacular and a great precedent for future beach houses in this coastal zone,” O’Neill says.

Regional Winners go on to compete at the State Architecture Awards to be held on Friday 17 July in the Plaza Ballroom, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
