Environmentally Sustainable Design of 2016
On Saturday 30th July, EME Design’s building The Artisan Apartments has been awarded as Best Environmentally Sustainable Design of the year 2016 at the BDAV Awards, which makes us very proud of the achievements we accomplished with this project.
We present an extract of the judges impressions:
“This project has been recognised as a true exemplar of sustainable medium density living. Truly sustainable design is a challenging exercise, as it actually has many dimensions to address: energy and water efficient performance, prudent material usage and durability, social liveability, even aesthetic attractiveness. The Judges’ view was that The Artisan manages to ‘tick all these boxes’ in a convincing and credible manner, through features such as carefully detailed building fabric and internal daylighting; water efficient plumbing fixtures and a 20,000 litre rainwater tank; as well as energy efficient lighting. All of which make the Artisan Apartments a worthy winner of the Best Environmentally Sustainable Residential Design.” – BDAV Judges
"The Artisan claimed to be ‘designed for the future’ – a claim that the Judging Panel was happy to accept." - BDAV Judges
