This year marks twenty-five years of the Dulux Colour Awards, which celebrate creative and inspired use of colour. All projects across the six categories used Dulux products.
Elenberg Fraser was the winner of the Grand Prix as well as the Residential Exterior prize for A’Beckett Tower, a residential apartment building in Melbourne’s CBD with a distinctive autumnal screen facade. The Residential Interior prize went to David Boyle for Burridge-Read residence, S2F won the Commercial Exterior prize for Nambour General Hospital New Ward Block, Herbert & Mason Architecture won Commercial Interior for Bleu, and Sustainable Interior went to Russell & George for Review. The Student prize went to Gemma Caon from the University of South Australia for Mads.
Now in its eighth year, the Fly Forbo Award offers a trip for two to Europe for the winners, who are chosen for their project’s standout use of Forbo flooring products.
Hassell received the overall award for the ANZ Centre in Docklands, Victoria. This 6 Star Green Star campus concept used Forbo Marmoleum and Aquajet cutting technology in one of the zones – named “Grow” – to create a series of fronds and tendrils that snake across the floor. The University College London (UCL) at the School of Energy and Resources in Adelaide, South Australia, attracted a high commendation for designer Swanbury Penglase. The inaugural New Zealand winner was Spaceworks Design for Hansells Food Group in Auckland, which saw Marmoleum fashioned into a bold linear design.
