Orange’s civic precinct has added a second Sulman Medal – the state’s top award for public architecture – to its collection.
More than 30 years ago the art gallery and library design was awarded the prestigious prize.
On Tuesday, the Orange Regional Museum’s architects Niall Durney and Ashley Dennis of Sydney firm Crone, who recently won the prize at the NSW Institute of Architects awards, handed the medal over to the Orange City mayor, Cr John Davis.
Crone Design Director, Niall Durney, said it was a pleasing victory.
“We are extremely proud to have won the NSW 2017 Sulman Medal for Public Architecture, one of the most distinguished awards in the state, particularly, as our mission was to create a forward-thinking design for the Orange Regional Museum that would contribute to the community and create a new destination for the area,” he said.
