The Koondrook Wharf in Gannawarra Shire has received statewide recognition for its architectural brilliance.
The wharf has been shortlisted in three separate categories of the 2018 Victorian Architecture Awards.
Gannawarra Shire Council mayor Brian Gibson said it was a great honour to have the wharf recognised at state-level.
“The nomination was submitted by the architect company Terroir who designed the wharf,” said mayor Gibson.
“To be shortlisted in three categories is a remarkable achievement and an acknowledgement to the architect as well as council staff and community members who worked together on the design.”
The Koondrook Wharf has been shortlisted in the Small Project, Urban Design and Regional categories.
Gannawarra Shire director of infrastructure Geoff Rollinson said the wharf was up against significant architectural projects from throughout Victoria.
“The Koondrook Wharf features amongst projects such as the Monash Transport Exchange, Sorrento Visitor Centre and the New Academic Street at RMIT University,” Mr Rollinson said.
“It is fantastic to have the Koondrook Wharf promoted and being recognised amongst these projects.
“Hopefully this will entice additional people to come to the area to view the wharf and enjoy all that Koondrook and our wider area has to offer.”
The 2018 Victorian Architecture Awards will be announced on June 29 and winners will progress to the National Architecture Awards announced in August.
