Cre­ativ­ity and tech­nol­ogy the cornerstones of award­win­ning build­ing

Australasian Timber - - NEWS -

Cre­ativ­ity and tech­nol­ogy are fuel for the in­no­va­tion gen­er­a­tion. In­ter­na­tional House Syd­ney is a fu­sion of these two com­po­nents, giv­ing a plat­form to de­velop a cul­ture of change and to drive sus­tain­able growth.

Stand­ing at the gate­way of Baranga­roo, In­ter­na­tional House Syd­ney is set to be­come an icon for the new CBD, a pure ex­pres­sion of de­sign ex­cel­lence and an ar­chi­tec­tural re­sponse to Syd­ney’s place on the global stage.

Ac­claimed Aus­tralian ar­chi­tects Tzannes and As­so­ciates de­signed the en­gi­neered tim­ber build­ing that uses Cross Lam­i­nated Tim­ber (CLT) and Glue Lam­i­nated Tim­ber (Glu­lam) to an­chor the build­ing to the wa­ter­front his­tory of Baranga­roo, while also cre­at­ing the fu­ture of com­mer­cial space.

This amaz­ing work has now re­ceived the ac­co­lades from an even wider au­di­ence and has been ad­judged the 2017 Aus­tralian Tim­ber De­signs Over­all Award Win­ner plus the highly cov­eted Peo­ples Choice Award.

The awards were pre­sented at a glit­ter­ing din­ner in Mel­bourne on 25 Oc­to­ber. Our next edi­tion will fea­ture pic­to­rial cov­er­age of the night plus a gen­eral wrap of the awards.
