THE Royal Australian Institute of Architects has presented its top award in Western Australia to architecture firm DesignInc for its design of the Fremantle Mausoleum at Palmyra. DesignInc and the Mausoleum emerged as big winners last week with two further awards, the Department of Housing and Works award in the public/institutional category and an architecture award in the interior award section. RAIA WA chapter president Ian Dewar said the building was a result of the architect creating beauty through the skilled use of scale, proportion and detailing, with a “serene balance of colour and value achieved with the use of high quality materials”. Cox Howlett + Bailey Woodland won awards for its Challenger TAFE Maritime Centre and Perth College Science Building, while Woodhead International was acknowledged with a design award for the Shark Bay Interpretive Centre. A winter cottage in the Blackwood Valley by Chindarsi Architects won three architecture commendations and an ecologically sustainable development architecture award. Other winners were Brackenridge Architects, Spaceagency, Iredale Pederson Hook Architects, Hames Sharley, Jeff Considene of Considene Architects, HASSEL and Jones Coulter Young joint venture, and Fringe Architects.
