ANNOUNCEMENT: Sydney Fish Market Reference Scheme recognised globally at WAF 2017

AJ+C and NH Architecture’s Sydney Fish Market Reference Scheme, which had been awarded ‘Future Projects – Masterplanning winner’ was announced as ‘World Future Project of the Year 2017’ on the 17th November from all Future Project categories at the World Architecture Festival in Berlin.

The judges took the view that the Future Projects Category “must award the project that opens up the greatest transformation of the future in all its forms,” and described the project as a “clear winner” in its category for finding a solution to a challenging brief.

The Super Jury, said AJ+C’s proposal “transforms a world bigger than itself.”

“It addresses matters of real life, visceral life, food and transport. The architects executed their role in an exemplary and inspiring fashion” they added.

Mark Dytham (Principal, Klein Dytham Architecture), Isay Weinfeld (Founder, IW. Arquitectura) and Monica von Schmalensee (CEO, White Arkitekter) completed the judging panel.

AJ+C and NH Architecture prepared the Reference Scheme and Urban Design Framework documents for UrbanGrowth NSW, which were used as the briefing documents for the Sydney Fish Market competition and redevelopment

NEW PROJECT RELEASE: Student housing offers potential to help ease affordibility crisis

Purpose built student housing (PBSH) has the potential to inspire a new form of Go Get or Uber-style accommodation helping to ease the nation’s housing aff rdability crisis, a leading Sydney architect said today.

Allen Jack + Cottier (AJ+C) Director Michael Heenan said new models of student housing being designed and built across Australia could be adapted for a significantly broader range of purposes – helping to meet the needs of a growing number of Australians squeezed out of the housing market.

“AJ+C has been exploring ways in which student housing models can be reimagined as innovative and successful new forms of affordable housing – an experimental Go Get or Uber style model if you like of collaborative consumption,” Mr Heenan said.

Accelerating and ongoing demand for student housing across Australia has seen it emerge as a major property sector growth area. In recent months alone, AJ+C has completed a range of projects for students and universities across Australia. These included two Urbanest buildings in Darling Harbour,

the fi rst opening earlier this year and the second due for completion by year’s end, along with student accommodation from Perth and Kalgoorlie in WA to regional NSW. “By its very nature, student housing is designed to be flexible, adaptable, affordable and sustainable – lending itself in our experience the potential to be reinvented for other markets.
