South Australian Architecture Awards
The St Andrews Hospital Eastern Clinical Development receives an Award in the Public Architecture category at the 2019 South Australian Architecture Awards.
Published Extract: “The architects have designed a contemporary, sophisticated addition to St Andrews Hospital; an asset to the eastern CBD city fabric and South Australia’s healthcare system.
The concept of healing and patient comfort resonates throughout the entire building design. The design team have successfully resolved the program functionally and experientially without compromise between the two, through efficient and logical planning; centralised clinical services with peripheral patient accomodation. Views are maximised to the Park Lands, city skyline and internal courtyards, enhancing solar access at every opportunity. The bulk and scale of the addition responds suitably to its context within the residential precinct, despite matching existing hospital floor levels. Facade articulation proportionally speaks to the adjacent heritage listed Waverley House and residentially typologies. A contemporary interpretation of the adjacent heritage material palette is cleverly adopted through the new facade.
The design team grasped opportunities to provide a services maintenance floor above highly sensitive clinical areas and undertook a multilevel underground staff carpark to minimise building heights. Consultation and collaboration throughout the design and construction management process achieved a value for money outcome.
Whether for a short or mid-term stay, the building pleasantly reassures the occupant through a de-institutionalised healthcare experience, while facilitating services of medical and surgical excellence.”
Adelaide Review Form Innovation Awards
The St Andrews Hospital Eastern Clinical Development receives a High Commendation in the Built Environment category at the Adelaide Review 2018 Form Innovation Awards.
Judges Citation: “The Eastern Clinical Development provides a thoughtful response to a complex context and program. The articulation of the facade assists in managing the scale of the development, resulting in a well-considered relationship with neighbouring buildings, as well as creating an interesting streetscape. The colour palette wonderfully complements the surrounding parklands flora. The balance between the highly services, technical nature of the facilities and the creation of a comfortable environment for staff, patients and visitors has been achieved through skilful detailing, maximising views to outside and uncluttered, commodious spatial arrangements.”

SA Architecture Awards
The Willunga High School Middle School and Trade Training Centre Development was entered into the 2013 South Australian Architecture Awards.
Brief: “The beautiful, slightly elevated setting of Willunga High School with its distant views over the vines to the Gulf of St Vincent beyond presented the key-stakeholder group with a starting point for the design process. The previous inward looking timber transportable classrooms were to be demolished and a fresh opportunity given to take advantage of the site, setting and topography. The brief called for the delivery of 12 new General Learning Areas (GLA’s) supporting the delivery of a middle school program for years 8/9 as well as a new Hospitality based Trade Training Centre.”
