Harbord Diggers receives international recognition at WAF 2021
The World Architecture Festival (WAF) has announced the first round of winners for the 2021 WAF Awards with Harbord Diggers receiving a high commendation for Completed Buildings – Mixed Use.
A collaboration between Architectus, CHROFI and JMD Design, the design of Harbord Diggers redevelopment celebrates the club’s iconic headland locality in Sydney’s Northern Beaches while serving the local community.
The mixed-use development, including a retirement village, is organised around a courtyard, with the hospitality precinct below. The headland landscape extends across the courtyard to amplify the scenic quality of the precinct. At the same time, a pair of sandstone buildings rise above as sculptural counterpoints, with flowing forms that frame the expansive coastal views.
The WAF theme for 2021 is: ‘Resetting the City: Greening, Health and Urbanism’. Learn more about this year’s WAF awards here.
