At this year’s South Australian Architecture Awards, Adelaide Botanic High School was the top performer – taking out the most accolades of the night.

ABHS won the Dr John Mayfield Award for Educational Architecture, the Robert Dickson Award for Interior Architecture and the Derrick Kendrick Award for Sustainable Architecture.

Jurors were impressed with the school’s composition and integration within the parklands setting as well as the smart incorporation of the existing Reid Building. SA Chapter president Tony Giannone said, ‘the Adelaide Botanic High School exemplifies the high-quality outcome that can be achieved when all parties invest in the process.’

‘This project is a community asset of lasting value – not just because of its sustainability credentials but also because it provides an example of how this state can provide state-of-the-art educational facilities with outstanding flexibility and adaptability.’

COX are proud that this project was awarded three architectural titles, and that the state-of-the-art vertical school joins a host of other educational facilities celebrated at the awards. We extend our congratulations to DesignInc Adelaide and all other collaborating teams.

This project will now progress to the National Architecture Awards to be announced on November 7.
