2016 NSW Architecture Award Winners


The 2016 NSW Architecture Awards were announced on Friday 1 July. Sixty projects from across the state were acknowledged from a shortlist of 79 and a total entry pool of 179.

The state’s longest standing honour, the Sulman Medal which was introduced in 1932, is awarded to a public building of exceptional merit and in 2016 it has been awarded to the ‘quintessentially Australian’ Kempsey Crescent Head Surf Life Saving Club by Neeson Murcutt Architects.

Major inner-city works balancing the demands of commercial, public and urban interests were lauded by the jury for their contributions to the city landscape. These include 5 Martin Place by JPW & TKD architects in collaboration, a winner in the Commercial, Heritage and Urban Design categories; and Liberty Place by francis-jones morehen thorp which received honours for Commercial, Sustainable and Urban Design along with the City of Sydney Lord Mayor’s Prize.

Sixty projects from across the state were acknowledged from a shortlist of 79 and a total entry pool of 179. View the full list of 2016 Award Winners below.
