The is the undisputed authority on great Australian homes and public buildings.

We’ve been running you through the shortlists of its prestigious awards programs in each state over the last few months, but now, the anticipation (partly) ends. We have the winners of the 2019 Victorian Architecture Awards.

Across 14 categories, 66 awards were given from a pool of 89 shortlisted projects and 248 overall entries. Victorian Chapter President Amy Muir reflected that these awards are a time for architects to celebrate and reflect on the inherent value that collaboration brings to the process of delivering holistic and compelling outcomes for the evolution of Victoria’s built landscape.

‘Successful built outcomes across our cities and regions are the product of collaborative relationships. It’s a team effort between clients, architects, consultants and contractors. Through this, we are able to build sustainable communities and create lasting legacies for our cities and regions,’ said Amy. ‘Regardless of the scale and scope of the project, it is always quality and longevity that determine the extent of the transformative impact architecture can have on people’s lives. Engendering positive social outcomes through architecture is increasingly important for the well-being of our communities.’

Projects that received an architecture award or a named award (and are listed below) will now progress to compete in the National Architecture Awards program – congrats!
