The Jimboomba Central project provided a strong response to all criteria in this category. The project is a well-considered piece of Architecture that sets a high bar for district precinct shopping centres within the City of Logan.
Retention of significant street facing landscape and development of activated edges to both the street and internal court space create a dynamic centre.
Breaks between tenancies provide further connection with large dynamic parasol roofs providing shade, shelter and identity.
Clever use of the falls across the site accommodate equitable access solutions seamlessly with circulation strategies.
Use of quality materials and a richness of detailing distinguishes the project. The continuing curation of tenancies is likely to lead to a strong attractor for the wider community.
Commendation: V Resource – Recycling Facility Office Building
Company - V.H International Holding
Builder/Designer - Craft Building Company
The V Resource facility is modest in many ways but provides leadership in consideration of solutions in industrial areas of Logan in both function and design.
As part of a broader facility, V Resource delivers recycling solutions to car batteries. It uses world leading technology and methodologies that present this task as a clean attractive industry rather than a dirty industry that it is often conceived as.
The controlling administrative centre is developed with very simple tilt forms and metal cladding techniques. These are consistent within industrial estates but apply a level of detailing and space making that delivers a high-end workplace environment that is beyond typical expectations.
