East Street was the joint winner of the Robin Boyd Award for Residential Architecture- Houses (New) at the 2020 National Architecture Awards.
Congratulations to Kerstin Thompson Architects for this incredible achievement!
We would like to specifically congratulate Kerstin Thompson Architects for our collaborative project on Town Hall Broadmeadows, and Panov Scott Architects on Kindred. It’s great to see so many creative Architectural projects nominated
We would especially like to send our warmest congratulations to Kerstin Thompson Architects for taking out the top overall award (The Victorian Medal) for Broadmeadows Town Hall, and Panov Scott Architects who won the top Residential Award (The Harold Desbrowe-Annear Award) for Kindred. Below is the list of awards/commendations that we were so very proud to be associated with;
Victorian Architecture Medal – Winner: Town Hall Broadmeadows (Kerstin Thompson Architects)
Public Architecture – Commendation: Town Hall Broadmeadows (Kerstin Thompson Architects)
Educational Architecture – Commendation: GPFLA Learning Centre (Branch Studio Architects)
Heritage Architecture – Winner: Town Hall Broadmeadows (Kerstin Thompson Architects)
Heritage Architecture – Commendation (Creative Adaptation): Art House and Studio (Zen Architects)
Residential Architecture – Winner: Kindred (Panov Scott Architects)
The review by Stuart Harrison highlights how the project “acknowledges cultural and architectural significance”, and we believe this to be a very accurate portrayal of what is a truly amazing feat of restoration architecture. This in-depth collaborative approach with KTA throughout the entire documentation and construction stage proves that great minds, with co-operative teamwork, creates great buildings. The building has been well received and celebrated, receiving the Victorian Architecture Medal, the George Knight Award for Heritage, and a Commendation for Public Architecture from the AIA.”
The new name for the practice reflects the existing four-year partnership of Alan O’Driscoll, Gai Palmer and Dale Simpson, and follows on from more than a decade of the three partners working together. We believe the new name and logo provides a positive, modern brand that will serve the company into the new decade – our fifth as a well-regarded structural and civil consultancy.
We are excited to announce this new change and very much look forward to continuing to work with all of our long-standing clients – with the same management, same team, same quality, and same commitment to responsive, detailed, and intelligent engineering services – but with a new name to take us into the new decade.
