22 June 2017

Darwin’s architectural community gathered last Friday (16 June) for the annual 2017 NT Architecture Awards, with MODE taking out the prestigious Tracy Memorial Award for the Bullocky Point Education Precinct.
The project was dubbed “a work of the Northern Territory” and also picked up an Education Architecture NT Chapter Award and the Award for Interior Architecture, making it the most awarded entrant.
MODE’s design of the Bullocky Point Education Precinct involved landscape architecture, interior design, architecture and wayfinding to deliver a cutting-edge environment for staff and students to advance their studies.
The purpose-built, flexible distance education facility is located within the grounds of Darwin High School and provides a unique opportunity for students of both schools to interact.
Fundamental to the projects mission, was improving outcomes for remote and regional learning, through a space that would offer state-of-the-art technology and an expanded distance education capacity.
MODE’s Darwin Architectural Student, Yvonne Aralar, was also awarded the 2017 Student Prize (supported by the Liveris Family) on the night, along with MODE receiving a commendation for the innovative Asbuild Office Fitout under the Small Project Architecture category.
