First place winners project had it all. Its iconic in its design as well as being sustainable and rooted in the history of the railway.
The winning project stood out for its unique combination of traditional forms of architecture and the dynamic nature of the railway. Studying local vernacular architecture, our first prize winners adopted a trusted and proven building form by lifting the building off the ground, this allowed for greater control of interior conditions by insulating from the winter cold as well as cooling during the summer period.
The project implemented a traditional construction and form with a strong silhouette and strong geometry, making it a bold and recognisable landmark that wouldn’t be out of place along this historic railway route.
