Jury feedback summary
The favorite for this competition was a project designed to integrate the building into the landscape and provide an open viewing platform for local residents and visitors. Circular in form and centered on the site, the project is set into a hill with three elevated sides and one side open for views facing the lake. The jury writes: ”An exceptional design with a beautiful and clever integration within the landscape. The program is spread organically using the topography of the site. The proposal of a circular community house is harmonious and tasteful for the chosen location - a strong sculptural form that does not disturb the natural topography, and offers a sheltered courtyard with good internal planning. The proposal reacts sensitively to the landscape and its views. The architecture blends into nature, while retaining a strong identity.” The jury commends the submission for its successful blending into the landscape, and for its exceptional drawings and visualizations.
