2007 Winners

Winner for Contemporary Design Category - 7 John Street, Queens Park

Architect: GDB Architecture Pty Ltd
Owner: Phillip Janis

A two-storey mottled brick and concrete tile 1970s house, overlooking Queens Park, was transformed into a spacious contemporary residence.

The architectural style and materials were updated creating a brighter more modern presentation creating a good transition between adjoining properties and contributing to the streetscape. Indoor and outdoor space have been blended together increasing useable living space and ventilation.

Winner for Heritage Conservation Design Category - Bronte Pool

Architects: Bronte Pool Project Management Team
Owner: Waverley Council

The Bronte Pool Project Management Team supervised stabilisation of the pool after it was damaged by wave action. Works to the existing wall maintained the forms and finishes of this socially and aesthetically significant ocean pool, which first opened in 1887.

Necessary structural stabilisation, including a new inner lining, capping, and finishes has retained the essential aspects of "ocean bathing” allowing bathers to lie in breaking waves. Also, improvements to access and enclosure of the pool outlet have increased safety for bathers.
