Knox Design and Development Excellence Awards

Knox Design & Development Awards

Council is excited to announce the very first Knox Design and Development Excellence Awards, celebrating excellence in Knox’s built environment.
Nominees are invited to enter a project that showcases design and development excellence in Knox.

As urban density increases to cater for a growing and changing population, Council is committed to working with the community and industry on improving design and development outcomes in the municipality.

The award categories and judging criteria are, in part, aligned to the preferred housing typologies within the areas defined in the Knox Housing Strategy: Bush Suburban, Local Living, Knox
Neighbourhood or Activity Area and sets out the preferred types of housing – detached dwellings, dual occupancies, villa units, townhouses and/or apartments – for each area.

Award categories will be offered for residential, industrial, commercial and institutional design and development. A special award, The Knox Award, will be selected as an exemplar from all the category winners.

How to enter

Entries are open now until 31 March 2019. Projects eligible are required to have been completed in the three year period between 1 January 2016 and 1 January 2019.
