WINNER: Buildings up to 3-Storeys
Glen Crescent House
Glen Crescent House is an excellent showcase of concrete. Not only is concrete the principal structural element in this project, but it is the primary finish for walls, floors, roofs, ceilings, columns and elements such as staircases, fireplaces and water features. The wide range of architectural concrete finishes and formwork-induced textures demonstrate the versatility of concrete as a construction material and as a superior finish of choice. Textures imprinted with lime residue from formwork contrasts with highly polished and pigmented concrete surfaces and precast staircase elements to create a sophisticated concrete palette.
Set against the landscape this meticulously executed house not only blends in, but it is a celebration of the poetic surface qualities which only concrete can achieve. The result is worthy as the winner of the Fulton Award in the “Buildings Up to Three Storeys” Category.
