School wins international award

Architectus’ expertise in the design of education buildings has been recognised at the 2018 WAN Awards with the Carey Baptist Grammar Middle School Redevelopment picking up a Future Projects Award in the Education category.

 

Architectus Senior Associate Paulo Sampaio was in London to accept the award at a gala event held on the 20th of November. In response to the client’s vision for a project of long-lasting significance and impact, the new building’s design strives for timeless visual and spatial qualities that allow it to sit comfortably in an ever-adapting campus of eclectic architectural styles and forms.

Its highly-transparent, floating upper volume is anchored to the earth by a series of sculptural elements including a dramatic concrete vault along its northern edge and two semi-enclosed stairs that taper to the ground plane in the northeast and southwest. Each of these elements help to establish the new building as an iconic marker for Carey and its broader community.

Continuing its success, the Macquarie University Incubator was also recognised at the WAN Awards, picking up a Highly Commended: Wood in Architecture. The WAN Awards are the world’s largest international architecture awards programme.
