WINNER: Buildings up to 3-Storeys

Glen Crescent House

Judges' Citation:

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.

Commendation: Buildings up to 3-Storeys

Rupert & Rothschild – New Classique Winery

Judges' Citation:

Due to time, structural and cost constraints, a precast concrete framed structure was adopted, which allowed construction to commence both in the precast factory and on the ground simultaneously. This also ensured that the installation of the process equipment could proceed as the structure progressed. The detail and finish between adjacent precast elements is of an extremely high quality. The client also insisted on the use of 13 concrete fermentation tanks which deviates from the norm of stainless steel tanks.

The external view of the precast columns creates an architectural illusion of floating concrete elements whilst also contributing to solar control on the facades. This project was deserving of a judge’s commendation in this category.
