BVN receives 'Best Tall Building Award' for Emblem Tower

'Emblem' the residential tower at 52 O’Dea Avenue, Waterloo received an Award of Excellence for Best Tall Building (100 metres and under) in the Council of Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) 2019 awards program.

This puts Emblem in the running for the “Best Tall Building Worldwide” that will be decided by an international jury at the CTBUH 2019 Tall + Urban Innovation Conference in Shenzen, China from 8-10 April 2019.

BVN Principal Phillip Rossington together with the client JQZ will present Emblem to the jury in Shenzen. This prestigious award is given to projects that have made extraordinary contributions to the advancement of tall buildings and the urban environment, and that achieve sustainability at the highest and broadest level.

Emblem is a 22-storey residential tower at the centre of an urban rejuvenation of an inner city precinct in Sydney. The building is the connecting architectural element of the site and has two smaller residential buildings designed by different architects on either side. All three buildings are connected by the ground plane landscaping and the underground car park that runs the width of the site.

As the tallest of the three buildings, the Emblem tower contains an elevated park on level 8 offering residents a recreational space with views across the adjoining Wulaba Park to the Sydney City skyline, Botany Bay and surrounding suburbs.

A distinctive series of interlocking forms and mirrored voids through the building’s façade enable views, natural light, ventilation and gardens that extend vertically through the main tower lobby and upper floors.

The building has been designed with a strong sustainability agenda that aims to reduce the energy requirements to heat, cool and light each apartment. Features such as high-performance glazing, bespoke external louvre systems and shading and planting ensure energy efficiency whilst still offering a high level of access to natural light and views.

Previous winners of this award include WOHA Architects and Far East Organization for Oasia Hotel Downtown, Singapore.
