For the second time now I have co-judged the 2015 Mosman Design Awards with fellow architects Gabrielle Morish & Robert Staas. Turning the community's attention toward design excellence is at the core of my raison d'etre, so I lunged at accepting this role. This year displayed a diverse range of interesting projects, some more excellent than others, however all the winners were fantastic! My special shout out to Clinton Murray and Polly Harrison of Architects in Association for their 36 Plunkett Road home in off-form concrete. And of course, to the client, without whom it wouldn’t have happened or been anything like it. Mosman Council should be applauded for holding such awards and encouraging their community to think about design in this way – all councils should be doing it!
