What does it take to design an award-winning project? Does it begin at the briefing end, or does it come down to clever awards submissions? We hear first-hand from the designers, suppliers and end users who have led projects from concept through to award-win.

Leone Lorrimer (GHDWoodhead Australia), Greg Hogg (Hogg & Lamb), Tristan Wong (SJB), Kate Frear (Woods Bagot) and Jeremy Napier (Sculptform) will share their insights into the vision and process that put their projects top of the game, and help you understand how to achieve industry recognition for your work.


Leone Lorrimer

For over 30 years Leone has been a recognisable presence in the architecture and design profession. Her projects have won numerous awards in Australia and internationally. She has been a leading design professional, a mentor and an executive director of two major international practices, as well as working as client to some of the world’s most famous architecture and design practices. Leone has recently been appointed as National Practice Leader for GHDWoodhead.

Greg Lamb

Hogg & Lamb is an architectural and interior design practice based in Brisbane, with experience in award winning residential & commercial projects. They combine the energy and enthusiasm of a new firm, with decades of experience designing and delivering high end residential & boutique interior projects.

Prior to establishing Hogg and Lamb, Greg had worked at several firms in Australia and the UK. Over 25 years of experience has, led to a knowledge base across a broad range of projects including; restaurants and bars, office fit-outs, hotels, health clubs and residential work. A particular interest in human cognition and perception, combined with an expertise in the design of the custom fixtures, furniture and graphic design result in a total user experience which characterise Greg’s approach to the design environment.

Tristan Wong

An awarded architect and SJB Director, Tristan’s innovative thinking and bold solutions are intrinsically connected to positive wellbeing outcomes and environmental benefits. His projects have won architectural and urban design awards, with particular reference to their clarity of message, innovation in their planning and design, and capacity to improve the health and experience of users.
His dedication to a more humanity-based outcome and belief in architecture’s ability to make a positive change to society at large is explored (both in practice, research and publication) of social and affordable housing systems, as well as progressive models of workplace design.
Tristan has experience in the curation, design and delivery of exhibitions and installations, in the fields of both art and architecture – both here and abroad. Currently, Tristan is co-creative director of the Australian Pavilion at the 17th Architecture Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia. He has also guest lectured at universities, illustrated for a book on environmental design, and advocates and supports not-for-profits including Architects Without Frontiers, Career Trackers and Career Seekers.
A former life as an illustrator and fine artist – and significantly, both parents artists – has coloured his perspective on architecture, and design more broadly. This has played out in an approach to processes within the studio that encourages hand drawing and sketching – a reminder of the inextricable connection between human-made design processes and the built environment.

Jeremy Napier

Jeremy Napier founded Sculptform in 2005, under the name Woodform Architectural. Working with timber has always been his passion, and this is what spurred the development of Sculptform’s first concealed fix decking and cladding systems.

Upon discovering his love of finely detailed timber building products was matched by Australia’s architectural community, Jeremy and Sculptform have continued to grow and develop their systems to become one of Australia’s leading suppliers of timber and aluminium linings.

Kate Frear

In under 15 years, Kate Frear transitioned from the obscurity of an architecture student to leading the Australian and New Zealand region of a global architecture practice.

A recognised specialist in lifestyle sector design, Kate is influential in the firm’s partnerships with architectural collaborators on flagship projects and a driving force in the management of complex projects involving integrated, mixed-use design solutions. Her leadership demonstrates a critical engagement in the development of strong place making and people-focused architecture and urban design, responsive to changing demographics and new ways of living and working. We see this in bountiful award winning work: Elwood House, Assembly Apartments, The Garden House, Sunday Apartments, Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre Stages 1 and 2, Qatar Science and Technology Park, Doha – and more. Most recently, we see it in the Woods Bagot’s collaboration with SHoP Architects on Collins Arch, Melbourne. Just completed, Collins Arch transforms an entire city block into a highly charged urban precinct activated to its core day and night.
