Construction Glazing for the d'Arunberg Cube Project
With tough competition in this category and many different uses of glass in a range of building designs we are extremely pleased with this winning project. With a very complex, high spec glass and aluminium façade requiring an un equalled level of technical input – a truly stand out world class achievement. The design and end result speaks for itself! A truly technical marvel!
Best Commercial Project under $50k
Wellfix Pty Ltd for the Heineken Bar
This project showcases a difficult glass processing achievement – with two layers of curved glass as well as other elements such as a copper overlay and lighting. This is a thoughtful design that pushes glass processing boundaries – great design and workmanship. The quality of finish in a demanding job that required a high level of accuracy reflects the skill and expertise of the project team.
Best Residential Project over $20k
Bent & Curved Glass for Waverley House
An unusual project, but great use of glass. With excellent aesthetics through minimal framing which enhanced the whole glass appearance gave this project a definite edge. The innovative use of glass, in particular curved glass, on the sliding doors, were well detailed and executed. Workmanship of the glass framing component was also seen as excellent by our judges.
Best Residential Project unders $20K
Palmers Glass for Luddenham Wine Cellar
Interesting and technically difficult application of glass. The seamless insertion in the cellar floor is well detailed. Excellent workmanship and the installation and materials are first class and the design, finish and product selection demonstrate a complete understanding of the client’s needs.
