SALES CENTRE AN AWARD WINNERSpring 2015
Blackwood Park’s Sales & Information Centre has been announced as the winner of the Environmental Excellence category at the 2015 Urban Development Institute of Australia (SA) Awards.
The centre, which is designed as a functional home, has been acknowledged by the judging panel for taking a proactive approach to environmental factors by cleverly utilising the sloping terrain and embracing two mature trees.
“This demonstration home shows potential buyers how these constraints can be overcome by clever architecture and the use of selected materials,” the judging panel noted.
“The chosen design permits building within tree root protection zones and allows for stormwater runoff. Rammed earth walling was used internally as an architectural feature whilst providing acoustic and thermal benefits.”
Blackwood Park’s Sales & Information Centre is located at 11 Dawbiney Avenue, Craigburn Farm and is open Saturdays and Sundays from 2pm to 5pm.
