TAG Architects win WA Chapters’ Highest Honour

10 Jun 2005

Our first residential project since the inception of TAG Architects has won two awards at the recent Royal Australian Institute of Architects WA Chapter ceremony.

Johnston Residence, Yallingup was awarded the ‘named’ Laminex Group – Single Residential Architectural Award, as well as the prestigious George Temple Poole Award which is the state’s highest architectural honour.

Any project fortunate enough to win a ‘named’ award is eligible for consideration for the overall prize. Johnston Residence was judged against award winning projects from all categories, including Public / Institutional, Civic Design, Multiple Residential, Heritage Conservation, and Commercial Architecture.

It was an unexpected honour for our Residential project to be named the winner of the 2005 George Temple Poole Award; the jury expressing the following remarks:

“Perched on the side of a steep slope this delightful house makes skilful use of a difficult site and takes advantage of dramatic views. Using an integrated palette of materials the architects conceptual intentions are very clear and are revealed in a well crafted, aesthetically pleasing and sensible structure. Spaces are elegant, warm and suffused with light but with appropriate environmental control.

“The Johnston residence is accomplished architecture that stands out as a worthy recipient of the George Temple Poole Award.”
