Allen Jack+Cottier’s recently-completed primary school building for The International Grammar School Sydney in Ultimo, Sydney, has won the Commercial Energy Efficiency Category at the Viridian Vision Awards for use of glass in construction.

Announcing the award at the AIA Nationl Conference in Melbourne on Friday, the judges commented that, “The International Grammar School’s newest addition has a stimulating design language that invites multiple interpretations and experience that breaks from the idea of windows as left-over holes in the wall. Windows as portals that offer an alternative view of the world are a central feature of building designed with, and for, creativity.” Peter Hyatt, Vision Awards Judge.
