Best Response to a Design Brief by a Student

WinnerPhalhong Mao

Student at RMIT University

Phalhong’s design has taken a complicated brief of a public building for the community servicing all stages of their life. What was delivered was the combination of a library, media centre, community hub and a childcare centre. Individually these are complicated building types, so combining them was ambitious and further complicated by the need to retain the existing heritage fa├žade. The Judges commend the designer on a well thought-out solution working with the different elements and heritage building to produce a warm, inviting, innovative, contemporary design.
