City of Casey’s new arts and cultural precinct Bunjil Place has won the top award for Public Buildings at the Victorian Chapter of the Australian Institute of Architects.

The $125m project, designed by leading Australian architectural firm Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp (fjmt), was awarded the William Wardell Prize.

As the winner of the Victorian Chapter, Bunjil Place is now in the running for the Australian Institute of Architects National Award for Public Architecture. The national award winner will be announced in November.

City of Casey Mayor Cr Geoff Ablett said we are honoured that Bunjil Place has been recognised with a second award win in less than a month.

“At the end of May we were delighted to hear that Bunjil Place had taken out the top honour at the International Design Awards (IDA) 2017,” said Cr Ablett.

“Award nominations were assessed by an independent design jury and to again see such high recognition received for the iconic design of Bunjil Place is a testament to the contemporary and innovative design that fjmt envisioned for our community facility.

“We are proud that the iconic design has created a welcoming and enlivening destination for residents and visitors to enjoy the many exciting entertainment, arts and cultural experiences on offer at Bunjil Place.”

Bunjil Place opened in October 2017 and comprises a range of community and civic facilities including an 800-seat theatre, multi-purpose studio, gallery space, three-level library, outdoor plaza with big screen and function centre.
