2018 Australian Institute of Architects, NSW Architecture AwardsMay 2018
We are thrilled to have 81 Foveaux Street selected in the Residential Architecture - Multiple Housing category for this year’s NSW Architecture Awards. The calibre of competition is incredibly strong, and we are humbled to be considered amongst some of Australia’s most remarkable design practices and look forward to the awards night in July.
Located on the former site of the Legion Cabs depot, 81 Foveaux Street includes a mix of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments along with a communal rooftop garden and retail at street level. The building is designed in off form concrete, with crisp white painted masonry and warm timber detailing with a stunning sculptural street awning incorporating a light installation by Sydney artist Mika Utzon Popov.
Regarding this year’s awards Peter Mould chair of juries, said: “I have had the privilege of overseeing the awards program since 2016, and every year I appreciate the variety and richness of opinions generated by debate about architectural excellence.
“This year’s panel chairs were also challenged to determine an overall winning project, which will receive the newly introduced NSW Architecture Medallion”, he added. “There are some outstanding projects among this year’s entries, and deliberations are still underway.”
