Constitution Avenue

Constitution Avenue Awarded

Last month Constitution Avenue was awarded twice at the Australian Institute of Architects ACT awards!

A collaboration with JILA, NCA, Hill Thalis, SMEC and AECOM, the project took home the ACT’s highest architecture honour, the Canberra Medallion, and also received the Sir John Overall Award for Urban Design.

The completion of the Avenue last year marked a project that was over a decade in the making, and has realised Griffin’s vision with a project that ‘negotiates the macro and micro scale with consistency, clarity and vision’.  Big congratulations to everyone involved and thank you AIA for the recognition!

 

Merry Christmas from the jila team

 

This year saw the completion of some great projects, in the public domain in Canberra and Sydney. Constitution Avenue in Canberra has been completed along with Thomas & Hay Street in Chinatown, amongst others.

A selection of our recently completed projects have been awarded at a state and national level, with Forest Edge Garden taking out the AILA National Gardens Award of Excellence and Chelsea Street Park receiving the AILA NSW Landscape Architecture Award – Parks and Open Space. Campbell Section 5 (Hassett Park) was also recognised for design excellence, being awarded AILA ACT Award for Excellence – Parks and Open Space, and was highly commended in the Stormwater NSW Award for Excellence in Integrated Stormwater Design.

 

We wish you all a safe and happy festive season, and we are looking forward to working on more exciting projects in the New Year.
