Ray Edgar reviews the Melbourne Design Awards and the Premier's Design Award which was awarded the Edithvale Seaford Wetlands Centre which we designed for Melbourne Water.

“The difference with the Premier's Design Awards is that they are outside the the profession from the “highest office in the state”…..from 13 disparate finalists Minifie van Schaik took home the Premiers Design Award for the Edithvale-Seaford Wetlands Discovery Centre. Its the second time the 10-year-old architectural practice has won the coveted prize. In 2008 it received a Premiere's Design Award for “cultural architecture” for its Australian Wildlife Health Centre at Healeseville Sanctuary”
