The winners of the City of Subiaco’s inaugural Heritage Conservation and Urban Design Awards were announced at a special ceremony at Subiaco Library on Monday night.
The awards recognise and congratulate property owners, architects and designers who have contributed to conserving and enhancing the city’s cultural heritage.
The judges awarded winners in two categories:
conservation of a heritage place
alterations and additions to a heritage place.
In the first category, conservation of a heritage place, the award went to 24 Gloster Street, Subiaco, which judges said was “a true gem of a conservation project”.
In the second category, alterations and additions to a heritage place, judges thought entrants could easily be divided into two distinct groups – small scale additions to typically smaller properties and larger scale additions to more substantial Subiaco residences. For this reason, the judges decided to award two winners for this category.
209 Hamersley Road, Subiaco was recognised for its large-scale additions and alterations and 103 Coghlan Road, Subiaco was awarded for its smaller scale additions and alterations.
Commendations were also awarded to properties of significant merit.
No prizes were awarded in the category for new buildings, and the category for adaption of a heritage place did not receive any nominations.
Award finalists will be on display at the Subiaco Library until Sunday 11 May.
