NSW Architecture Awards 2022

MWA’s St. Mary’s Social Housing project awarded a Commendation in Residential Housing – Multiple Housing at NSW Architecture Awards 2022.

Jury Citation:
Social housing in an outlying suburb rarely results in quality design. McGregor Westlake has responded to the suburban environment of free-standing brick and fibro bungalows to produce a 44 unit building that addresses residents needs without neglecting the architecture. Lobbies are generous social spaces, affording spontaneous opportunities for casual interaction. The seat at the ground floor entry is a great touch, a pausing place overlooking the street. The balconies are detailed, with considered washing lines, privacy and wind attenuation. While the building is obviously architect designed the materials are selected for durability and context rather than fashion, blending the design into this typical Sydney outer suburb.”

NSW Architecture Awards

MWA with Hill Thalis AUP & Jane Irwin Landscape Architecture receive Urban Design Award for the Parramatta Escarpment Boardwalk at 2022 NSW Architecture Awards.

Jury Citation:
Situated at the Charles Street weir and ferry wharf, the new Parramatta Escarpment Boardwalk now affords a continuous foreshore accessway for pedestrians and cyclists, from the University of Western Sydney at Rydalmere to Parramatta Park. Responding to a series of complex technical challenges, including flood levels, ferry turning circles and bicycle safety standards, the project overcomes these challenges, presenting as a coherent, robust, and elegant solution. The boardwalk’s sinuous alignment and repetitive segmented form adds to inherent spatial drama of the river foreshore, providing a memorable entry to Parramatta from the water. The project team are to be congratulated for delivering an accomplished and transformative urban project, one that gracefully reframes the public focus and recreational ambitions of the river for the City of Parramatta.”
