As a nod to the growing industry commitment to advancing good design, an incredible 56 unique projects have entered the Building Designers Association of Victoria’s (BDAV) annual Building Design Awards.
Celebrating its 24th year, the 2019 Awards showcase the best residential, interior, sustainable, heritage conservation and non-residential design projects from BDAV’s members across Victoria and beyond.
BDAV President Dominique Hunter believes the Awards are vital for the industry to encourage excellence and performance as it gives designers a high standard to work towards.
“We’re proud to showcase and acknowledge the importance of building design, both within our professional community and across the wider community of those we serve with good design,” said Ms Hunter.
