Established in 1984, the Southcott Awards are bestowed annually to honour outstanding achievements in heritage restoration, design in context, heritage stewardship, adaptive reuse, heritage trades, and lifetime achievement in the preservation of built heritage in Newfoundland and Labrador.
The quality of our architectural heritage has come to be one of the defining aspects of Newfoundland and Labrador. The Trust has been very much responsible for that definition, but our award winners make that definition a reality.
The Southcott Awards are named for one of Newfoundland’s most important nineteenth century building firms, J. & J.T. Southcott. J.T.’s architect son, John Thomas Southcott (1853-1939) made his mark with the Second Empire style of the Southcott properties at Park Place on Rennie’s Mill Road in St. John’s. This “Southcott style” was prominent in the rebuilding that followed the Great Fire of 1892, and spread throughout the colony.
Award Category Description
Nominations are considered for finished architectural restoration projects of historic properties. The committee considers architectural design, quality of conservation work, preservation of original features, use of traditional materials, and the integrity of the structure and its surrounding site.
Buildings which display an architectural style that is of a recognizable modern design (early to mid-twentieth century) will also be considered.
