The Central Queensland Regional Architecture Awards announced the winners and the Building of the Year Award goes to – Azuris by Renato D’Ettorre Architects. It feels overwhelming to introduce this year’s awardee – Azuris. This dream home has been created as a retreat for relaxing and taking advantage of the subtropical weather and it is undeniably modern.
The modern home has a pavilion that complements the water, air and light and the modern architects from Renato D’Ettorre Architects carefully chose the materials included in the design so it responds to the environment and can endure the subtropical humidity, downpours and the intense heat of the sun. The modern architecture represents the tropical ethos by using durable materials to function as base and frame the spectacular views while providing warmth, comfort and protection to the living and intimate spaces.
This project by Renato D’Ettorre Architects seamlessly combined the modern spatial interior design with excellent craftsmanship to give rise to 5-star interiors while making sure the exteriors respond well to the environment.
Azuris got into fierce competition against seven other projects including a primary school, adaptive community for housing miners in Moranbah and technical college. Azuris grabbed the award while two other projects received commendations such as the Park Avenue Hotel by TVS Architects and the Ergon Energy Rockhampton Skills Training Facility designed by Lend Lease Design in collaboration with Architectus.
I must say that this project is a spectacular home with absolute modernity. I am not fond of ultra-modern houses but this time my opinion changed. It created a stunning impression that lasted or even grew stronger as I viewed the entirety of the architecture. The bathroom design evokes an intimately modern feel about it.
Overall, I like the project as I find it inspirational in the ultra-modern way. I’m sure those who are planning to create a modern space like this would find the layout and the implemented house floor plans inspiring and overall stunning. Azuris surely deserved the Building of the Year Awards as it only received the attention due to it.
