Peak body awards top Territory architecture

By Katie Weiss

The architectural endeavours of a design graduate and a state-of-the-art facility at Charles Darwin University’s Casuarina campus have been recognised at a recent industry awards ceremony.

The Trade Training Centre facility by MODE Design Corporation received the Sustainable Architecture Award at the annual Northern Territory Architecture Awards in Darwin.

The facility was acknowledged for its sustainable practices, which included rainwater harvesting, natural sunlight and solar collection, and cross ventilation. 

CDU Bachelor of Design graduate Danni’elle Jenkins won the Student Award for having the highest academic achievement in the NT after graduating earlier this year.

“I really enjoy coming up with concepts and seeing how far you can go in bringing them to life,” she said.

Danni’elle is working as an architectural graduate at Hames Sharley Architects in Darwin, which has seen her work on various projects including a boardwalk, a shopping centre and interpretive displays.

During the recent awards ceremony, the Menzies School of Health Research’s Royal Darwin Hospital campus facility, designed by Hames Sharley, received the Public Architecture Award and the Colorbond Award for Steel Architecture.
