Awards


2017
AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTS, NSW Chapter

Architecture Award: Small Project Architecture

North Bondi Amenities, North Bondi NSW
With Lymesmith.

Project Team : Sam Crawford, Benjamin Chan, Ken Warr, Imogene Tudor, Antonia Frey, Jane Crawford, Lachlan Delaney, Madeleine Rowe, Chelsea Harper

Jury Citation: The North Bondi Amenities replace a former amenity building in the same location at the northern end of Bondi Beach, with a new larger structure providing facilities for beach-goers including change rooms, toilets facilities, outdoor showers and hand basins. The building wraps around and integrates the Sydney Water Pump House into one united structure, including perimeter seating for the bus stop to the rear.

The robust and beautifully detailed concrete structure with hardwood batten cladding exterior has durable internal finishes of terrazzo, polished and off-form concrete, and a limited colour palette of white and soft greens. Orientated towards the concourse and the beach, a ramped entry leads users into the amenities, past the showers and white cantilever porch with overhanging roof planting and oculus detail. This circle motif is repeated internally through large roof lights, and externally in the array of mirrors at varying heights above the basins. The green roof insulates the interiors and enhances the beach views from taller buildings beyond.

Attention has been given to every detail, from the timber batten sliding and swing doors that secure the building at night, to the signage, bench seats, cantilever awnings and the stained and painted hardwood timber cladding. The building upholds and adds to the high urban design standards of its setting in the North Bondi precinct.

 

2017
AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTS, NSW Chapter

Commendation: Public Architecture

North Bondi Amenities, North Bondi NSW
With Lymesmith.

Project Team : Sam Crawford, Benjamin Chan, Ken Warr, Imogene Tudor, Antonia Frey, Jane Crawford, Lachlan Delaney, Madeleine Rowe, Chelsea Harper

Jury Citation: This smallest of public buildings sets a high benchmark for civility. It engages both users and the passer-by on a number of levels: an integrated bus seat and shelter, external basins and vanity mirrors for grooming, external showers, and a roof top garden for nearby neighbours to look out onto. Thoughtfulness to detail is applied across all scales: from a clever venting detail to retain change room privacy, through to the resolution of a complex construction regime arising from an adjacent, unrelated pumping station which is skilfully embraced into the composition.

2016

AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTS, NSW Chapter

Architecture Award: Public Architecture

Marks Park Amenities, Tamarama NSW
Project Team : Sam Crawford, Imogene Tudor, Ken Warr, Benjamin Chan, Antonia Frey, Madeleine Rowe, Matthew Bolton

Jury Citation: This bold yet careful overlay to an existing amenities block provides both a heightened human experience and a new found public presence. Salvaged hardwood is used to create a new envelope that gives the building a strong and welcome presence on the headland, whilst framing the park behind. The repetitive vertical timber elements frame entries, external wash areas and views, and are deliberately detailed to encourage a patina on the concrete base.

The project successfully lifts and adapts an earlier engineering solution into a generous pavilion that seems new, carefully placed and considered. It is a true demonstration of the value of good architecture in creating a quality public domain.

 


2016

AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTS, NSW Chapter

Architecture Award: Small Project Architecture

Marks Park Amenities, Tamarama NSW
Project Team : Sam Crawford, Imogene Tudor, Ken Warr, Benjamin Chan, Antonia Frey, Madeleine Rowe, Matthew Bolton

Jury Citation: The dramatic transformation of this amenities building into a refined and contemporary building has been resolved with clarity and thoughtful detail.

The original brick and concrete block has been clad with recycled timber post screens on all four sides, the attention to detail and consideration of which is skillfully resolved. The architects have also made sense of the existing buildings awkward siting with a reconfiguration of the plan to provide additional toilets and a wash basin area with views to the ocean. This move has inverted the building and created a special moment for visitors as they use and experience the site.

The jury were struck by the project’s logical design and sophisticated resolution – including retention of the existing building – which provides Waverley Council with a durable and beautiful amenities building that will age gracefully and withstand the challenging coastal conditions.

2012

AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTS

NSW Architecture Award – Houses

Smee Schoff House, Petersham NSW
Jury Citation:The Smee Schoff House fulfils a familiar task of Sydney architecture with particular distinction. A Federation cottage on a busy street in the inner west was opened to its back garden. The result is a model of its kind, resolving the many challenges of the site with such ease the difficulties seem hardly to exist.
