Farrells net three Asian architecture awards
Farrells have won three architectural awards at two recent awards ceremonies. At the International Property Awards for the Asia-Pacific region, presented on 25 May in Bangkok, two Farrells projects garnered awards in the architectural category:
KK100 – Winner, Best Commercial High-rise, China
Vattanac Capital – Winner, Best Mixed-use Project, Cambodia
Farrells director Stefan Krummeck accepted the awards, commenting, “We are immensely proud of these projects – they are two of our most recognisable skyscrapers. KK100 was, until recently, the tallest tower in Shenzhen, one of China’s youngest and most dynamic cities.
“Likewise, Vattanac Capital is the tallest building in Phnom Penh. In both cases, we developed distinctive tower forms rooted in local culture – and worked hard to ensure that the buildings respected their urban surroundings, especially at ground level.”
Meanwhile, the Kennedy Town Swimming Pool won the Gold Award, Public Amenity Buildings category at the ARCASIA Awards for Architects (AAA), presented by the Architects Regional Council Asia in Jaipur, India on 24 May 2017.
Likened to a futuristic spaceship by Hong Kong media, the new Kennedy Town Swimming Pool owes its characteristic shape to the streets and historic tram line that define the triangular site. Inspired by a shell, the building’s distinctive zinc roof opens up to Victoria Harbour, allowing swimmers to enjoy ocean views and breezes from the pool deck. The pointed end of the roof shelters a garden at ground level, extending the green landscape from the adjacent Belcher Bay Park.
