2007 Jury Commendation for Innovation

Whitfield Barracks

Horizontal Navigation Bar w/Rollover Effect

Jury Citation

This contemporary intervention to the former Whitfield Barracks has successfully reconfigured the historic military complex into the Heritage Discovery Centre. The new lightweight structure forms the core of the complex, thereby acting as a central circulation node linking all spaces. The transparency of the glass skin, designed in a modern architectural vocabulary, creates continuity between the interior and exterior spaces. The addition provides a fitting counterpoint to the ninety-year-old barracks and integrates seamlessly into the surrounding park context.
