Two Architectus projects, three awards

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and Royal Far West Centre for Country Kids have been recognised at the 2019 Master Builders Association NSW Excellence Awards.

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) at the University of Sydney received the ‘Excellence in Best use of Glass’ award for its economically advanced façade made from Sefar-Okalux architectural glass.

The innovative façade maximises daylight, reflects sky conditions and reduces solar gain in high heat environments, therefore decreasing the need for central cooling systems. FASS also won the ‘Tertiary Buildings, $25m – $75m’ award.

Winning the ‘Health Buildings, $30m – $50m’ award, the design for the Royal Far West Centre for Country Kids responds to its seaside location with natural, warm and calm materials creating a light-filled inviting place that expresses the nature of RFW’s Care for Country Kids.

Congratulations to all!
