AILA 2023 SA Landscape Architecture Award for Urban Design
“The Prospect Road Regeneration Project has created a vibrant public realm for the community. The project is an inspiring example of how collaboration, consultation and a strong concept can further enrich a unique design outcome.
The area is culturally diverse which meant the concept design was translated into multiple languages to ensure all cultures were consulted equally and understood the project. The metaphorical concept of a rug which created the patterns, spaces, landscapes and street furniture meant that all spaces and forms beautifully mesh together creating an outcome which is a celebration of street life.
The Jury commends the project team on the engagement with a local artist to further strengthen the built outcome. The artist influenced all facets of the design including the two-toned paving palette which has been intricately laid.
The Prospect Road Regeneration Project creates a unique destination that reinforces the value of community collaboration and celebrates the cultural diversity of the area.”

AILA 2023 SA Landscape Architecture Award for Health and Education Landscape
“The transformation of St Joseph’s School reflects a shift in priorities for learning environments in schools, with the role of external spaces contributing to the wellbeing and engagement of students just as much as the internal spaces. The collaboration between architect, school community and landscape architect has achieved a design that integrates outdoor learning, play opportunities and spaces for social connection that flows seamlessly around the school.
The new frontage provides a welcoming first impression that draws students and visitors into the space. The use of natural and recycled materials reinforces the character of the surrounding architecture, strengthening the school’s presence and identity.
Informed by an extensive consultation process, the play elements offer students a robust space to explore and challenge themselves. The incorporation of interpretive and educational signage demonstrates the attention to detail taken within the project.”
