Learning Environments WA members win at the West Australian AIA Awards

Published: Thursday 17 November 2016

Congratulations to the five award winners in the Education category of the Australian Institute of Architects' WA Chapter Awards.  All five award-winning firms within this category are members of Learning Environments Western Australia, recognising the great work of our members within the industry.

Congratulations to Parry and Rosenthal Architects for winning the Hillson Beasley Award for Educational Architecture for Mother Theresa Catholic College.

The jury appreciated the 'honest use of materials, appropriate scale and subtle manipulation of space and ground plane [that] have resulted in a project that offers the community a warm, welcoming, place for children to thrive. The arrangement of learning spaces around a central play area provides a sense of being part of a small community, and the intimate scale of built form creates a relaxed, non-institutional environment.'

Other category winners were:

Well done to all entrants, who now progress to the National Awards.
