Orange Regional Airport could soon bring home more than just travellers following its
entry into this year’s coveted Australian Institute of Architects’ NSW Country Division
Awards.

The New Orange Regional Airport Terminal Building by Geolyse and Cox Architecture is vying for an award in the Public and Commercial Architecture category.

The substantial upgrade to the terminal building has significantly expanded the airport’s capacity in a way that better meets the needs of the regional communities
it services, as well as the increasingly important tourism market.

NSW Country Division Chair, Sarah Aldridge, said the awards, now in their 52nd year, are
an important way to showcase outstanding architecture outside the main city and
metropolitan centres.

‘Regional, rural and remote Australia is home to some of the best projects the
architectural profession has to offer,’ Ms Aldridge said.

‘Australia’s unique landscapes offer both challenges and opportunities to apply leadingpractice
architectural design.

Since its inception in 1960, the NSW Country Division has provided continuous
representation and service to NSW regional architects of the Australian Institute of
Architects outside the metropolitan areas of Sydney and Newcastle.
