The Lodge on the Lake

FIRST PLACE: The Lodge on the Lake Design Ideas Competition - a competition to design a new official residence for the Prime Minister of Australia.

Jury Citation

This design stood out as one that most successfully integrates the built forms with the subtle landscape of Attunga Point: it responsibly owns the landscape, it is beautifully sited and it celebrates the lake edge location. Casual, yet imposing, it reflects the informal nature of contemporary Australian lifestyles and architecture, while providing attractive larger spaces for public gatherings. Its materials - concrete, Australian timber and recycled metal - were chosen to weather and harmonise with the colours and textures of the bushland setting. Environmental considerations included extensive water detention.
