TWO local building designers have been shortlisted for the People’s Choice category in the 20th Building Designers Association of Victoria (BDAV) Building Design Awards.
BDAV is calling on Victorians to choose their favourite design project from the entries in the awards that celebrating the best building designers across residential design, interior design, heritage conservation, energy efficient design and non-residential design including commercial, industrial, hospitality and public buildings.
David Anderson from Korumburra Drafting & Building has been nominated for a Residential Design Award (New Houses $300K-500K).
The firm’s project, The Trout House (Loch), is being recognised for its simple but unusual architectural form in conjunction with functional planning, which has created a unique home which is both visually appealing and very liveable.
Also, local building designer Ashley Beaumont from Beaumont Concepts (Wonthaggi) has been nominated for a Residential Design Award (New Houses $300K-500K).
The firm’s project, The Silverleaves is being recognised as a cost effective low-maintenance holiday home that combines functional spaces within a small footprint to ensure sustainability and long-term operational savings.
Both designers are also nominated for the prestigious People’s Choice Award.
Voting is now open at www.bdav.org.au and closes at 10am, Monday, July 13.
The award will be presented at the BDAV Annual Dinner on Saturday, July 25.
BDAV President Alistair McDonald encouraged the public to take the time to appreciate Victoria’s best in building design and discover their passion for creative and sustainable design.
“The People’s Choice Award gives people the chance to vote for the project they believe is the most innovative, visually stunning and technically advanced design,” Mr McDonald said.
“The high standard of design work showcased at the awards throughout the past 20 years reflects the exceptional talent and expertise of Victorian building designers.”
