Atkar's office and trade desk will be closed over the Christmas break.
The Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) has won the top prize, the Victorian Architecture Medal, at the 2017 Victorian Architecture Awards. Designed by an architectural team of Silver Thomas Hanley, DesignInc and McBride Charles Ryan (STHDI+MCR), the VCCC showcased our Acoustic and Decorative panels throughout the Welcome Hall. The outstanding project beat more than 200 entrants for the medal, and also won the William Wardell Award for Public Architecture.
Run by the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA), the annual awards recognise the best in Victorian architecture. Sixteen category winners were presented at a ceremony in Melbourne on June 30 2017. The AIA noted whether government-commissioned projects, or homes and private offices, this year’s winning projects put people and communities first.
Atkar panels were also featured in the winner of the Joseph Reed Award for Urban Design – Frank Bartlett Library and Moe Service Centre, designed by Architects fjmt. Architecture Awards for Public Architecture – Bunurong Memorial Park, designed by BVN; and Brimbank Community and Civic Centre, designed by Lyons Architects.
Congratulations to all the winners and we are very proud to have been involved in such exemplary creations.
Named Award and Architecture Award winners go on to compete in the National Architecture Awards, to be announced in November.
