Fore­shores project wins praise

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - NEWS -

COFFS Har­bour’s Jet­ty4Shores Project up­grade has taken out an ar­chi­tec­ture award.

The project has re­ceived top honours in the Aus­tralian In­sti­tute of Ar­chi­tects NSW Coun­try Di­vi­sion Awards.

The award for Ur­ban De­sign went to the Jet­ty4Shores Re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion project by Fisher De­sign and Ar­chi­tec­ture with Macken­zie Pronk Ar­chi­tects and Coffs Har­bour City Coun­cil.

“The project ef­fec­tively com­mu­ni­cates the spirit of place and the gen­uine com­mu­nity af­fec­tion for this site,” the jury said.

“The cul­tural and en­vi­ronCoffs men­tal mean­ings of the site have been en­shrined within the de­sign.”

Har­bour Coun­cil Deputy Mayor Te­gan Swan said: “The Jet­ty4Shores project is an out­stand­ing suc­cess and has been so well re­ceived by lo­cals and vis­i­tors alike.

“It’s fan­tas­tic to see the project and the work of a lo­cal firm, as well as coun­cil, re­ceive such amaz­ing recog­ni­tion from a na­tional peak body.

“Ac­knowl­edge­ment from such a pres­ti­gious or­gan­i­sa­tion is a great achieve­ment for all those in­volved in this ma­jor project.”

The awards high­light the value of cre­at­ing high-qual­ity ur­ban spa­ces and fa­cil­i­ties for re­gional com­mu­ni­ties.
