Check out these North Coast builds up for awards
THREE very different North Coast builds are in the running for a prestigious architecture award.
Celebrating quality and diversity of architectural design from across regional and country NSW, the public can now choose their favourite from the 42 projects in the running for the 2020 NSW Country Division Architecture Awards.
"Responding to the many different environmental challenges and lifestyles across our vast state - from mountains to coast, riverlands to bush - regional architects need to have a deep understanding of place," said awards jury chair Nicholas Brown.
"The quality and range of entries in this year's awards represent that understanding."
