WA's best architecture awards.
Staff reporter
June 20, 2009

An "exciting" Bunbury high school has won its designers top honours in the WA architecture world.

Manea Senior College was honoured with the public architecture award at the WA architecture awards last night.

The school, which judges said was an "exciting building resulting from both an innovative planning concept and a rigourous attention to detail" was designed by Cox Howlett and Bailey Woodland.

See all the award winners here.

It featured an integrated cafe and library which judges said fostered a "collaborative approach to learning".

Six other WA architects were commended in the public architecture category, with the buildings being: the Association for the Blind of Western Australia in Victoria Park (Hames Sharley), UWA Business School (Woods Bagot), Midland Operations Support Facility Stage 2 (Peter Hunt and Daryl Jackson Architects), Atwell College (JCY Architects and Urban Designers), Denmark health Service and Dalyellup College (both Hassell).

Cox Howlett and Bailey Woodland also won two other awards - commercial architecture and urban design - for the Sorrento Quay Boardwalk and the company also got a commendation in the commercial category for its work on the Lexus Showroom.

The major residential award went to Spaceagency for Casa Giudice in Mosman Park.

Judges said the home, designed for a family with teenage children, offered " ameasure of independence while continuing to nurture daily family interaction". It also incorporated sound sustainability features.

Iredale Pedersen Hook Architects took out the residential alterations prize for its work on a Swan St residence, while Blane Brackenridge won the top gong for multiple housing for its Apartments in Cottesloe.

Armstrong Parkin Architects won the best small project for the Swan TAFE Thornlie Campus metal trades welding workshop while Gresley Abas took out the sustainable architecture prize for a Department of Housing and Works demonstration home in Ellenbrook.

"The idea of this house is bigger than the house itself," judges said.

Midland Operations Support Facility also won the heritage award for Peter Hunt and Daryl Jackson Architects, while Woods Bagot took out the interior architecture prize for its corporate fitout of Wesfarmers.

Hassell won the steel award for the Denmark Health Service building and Taylor Robinson Architects won the lighting award for i-Zone, in the Curtin University library.

Australian Institute of Architects WA president Rod Mollett said there were a record 123 entries for the awards, despite the present economic conditions.

"The construction sector in WA remains relatively strong with a number of projects still to be completed," he said.

Several significant projects proposed by the State Government in the next couple of years would "further enhance" WA with world-class architecture, Mr Mollett said.

It's the Palace Hotel. Built in 1897, and converted to offices in the 1980s when the BankWest Tower (which appears to "grow" out of it) was built.

I once worked in that building, which was known by some people as the Wan_k_best building, presumably due to their explanation of account charges.
The foyer is sooooo lofty and was said to be designed to have Australia 2 hanging in it, however as the America's Cup was won in September 1983, at which time the building was up tog round-level, I think this may be false. I managed to get up to the upper level one day, which was empty at the time, and the view was far-reaching along the Swan River.

What's the building in the top photo of calieigh's post?

The roofline is great -- I like those tall narrow dormers topped with round gables.
