Do you have what it takes to win a City of Nedlands Design Excellence Award?

The City of Nedlands, home to some of the most impressive architecture and urban design in Western Australia, is calling for nominations for the 2019 City of Nedlands Design Excellence Awards.

City of Nedlands Mayor, Max Hipkins, says the Design Excellence Awards provide an opportunity for the City to acknowledge the contribution made by talented professionals and individual residents, to the beauty and ambience of the City of Nedlands.

“These sought-after Awards, presented bi-annually, recognise and celebrate outstanding examples of heritage conservation, contemporary planning, urban design, landscaping, public art and other state-of-the-art projects that contribute to the quality and appeal of the City of Nedlands,” Mr Hipkins said.

Judges will be looking for high-quality work that demonstrates best practice and provides positive benefits to the community, aesthetically and practically. Nominees can be either the architect, designer, landscaper or artist responsible for the work or the owner or resident of the property nominated.

Categories include residential, multi-residential, commercial, landscape, public art and heritage, with all projects judged on merit using criteria specific to each category. A single project may extend over more than one category.

To be eligible for nomination, projects must be completed or substantially completed.

Nominations open on Monday 2 September and close at 5pm Monday 30 September 2019. See the City of Nedlands website for entry details.
