Building of the Year

Congratulations to Bureau Proberts on receiving the John Dalton Award for Building of the Year at the Australian Institute of Architects’ Queensland Regional Architecture Awards for the Walan Apartments project.

Our Senior Architect and newest team member, Alex Eckersley, was the lead designer on this amazing project and worked closely with the client to create Walan. This unique building responds to its context and the brief to form a series of open plan single level apartments; Queenslanders in the sky. Each apartment is connected to an intimate vertical forest and screen inspired by the colours and form of the Kangaroo Point cliffs. The coloured screens provide operable shade and privacy for the residents, whilst creating a dramatic new marker within the Brisbane skyline.

Wouldn’t it be incredible to see projects like this in the Toowoomba region! Alex is working on several exciting projects at Feather & Lawry Design so watch this space for his next masterpiece.
