Campbell House is the adaptive reuse of a 1890’s early Federation house set within a Heritage Conservation area. The integrated design approach of architecture-heritage-interior stitched together unifies the contemporary office use and the original building.
There is so much to applaud about Campbell House and the jury unanimously felt it was the clear, fair stand-out in the category. It is timeless, elegant, unified and finely detailed and could very much work as a universal application – it could be a home, it could be a retail store, it could be a workplace… Its materiality is particularly impressive and the way the palette is used to celebrate the heritage and contemporary integration is outstanding. The highly notable sustainability credentials are significant and embedded in every aspect and the project demonstrates innovation, not just through its green credentials, but also in its respectful interaction with the existing architecture.
