Winner Excellence in Use of Glass

Designer: Vibe Design Group Pty Ltd
Builder: Icon Synergy
Photographer: Robert Hamer Photography
Location: Mornington, VIC

This was the unanimous winner for excellence in the use of glass. This project stood out amongst other entries by not only using glass for design elements such as balustrading and windows, but adopting glazing strategies for defining spaces and providing the separation of areas, while maintaining view cones and connectivity. These glazed elements sit comfortably and complement other materials used for the building. Glass plays an important role in the overall design intent, bringing the ground level into the upper living zone. A two-storey black anodised window combination frames the view of the significant English Oak Tree.
