2013 National Architecture Awards: Sustainable

One One One Eagle Street by Cox Rayner Architects Sustainable Architecture: National Commendation Australian Institute of Architects

Jury citation

The application of contemporary design technologies has the significant potential for substantial reduction in the use of materials and structure in buildings. One One One Eagle Street successfully demonstrates how application of scripting in the design of towers has reduced material required for the structure by 20 percent while that structure also forms a key part of the contemporary expression of the building. A well-tuned facade operates to integrate screening and air intake with the structure, ensuring that the small moves made in reduction or integration are amplified by distribution across the scale of the tower.

With the addition of a gas-fired trigeneration system to fulfil chilled water requirements, the project embodies a strong model for the contemporary commercial tower.
