Living Screen House Wins 2018 Good Design Award®
The winners of Australia’s Good Design Awards, the highest honour for design innovation in Australia, were announced at the Sydney Opera House on 17 May at the 60th Annual Good Design Awards Ceremony.
Living Screen House received a prestigious Good Design Award® Winner in the Architectural Design category in recognition for outstanding design and innovation.
The annual Good Design Awards is Australia’s most prestigious Awards for design and innovation with a proud history dating back to 1958. The Awards celebrate the best new products and services on the market, excellence in architectural design, digital and communication design and reward emerging areas of design including business model innovation, social impact and design entrepreneurship.
The Good Design Awards Jury commented – Very clever and thoughtful concept. The Jury applauds the use of a vertical green screen to provide both privacy from neighbours, passive cooling and beautiful natural light. Clearly, a delightful family home. A clever use of space, originally expressed, in a challenging high density environment. The design of the exterior form is very beautiful.
The 60th Anniversary Good Design Awards attracted a record number of entries. From the 536 innovative designs, only 260 projects were selected to receive the coveted Good Design Award®.
The winners were presented with the new sustainably designed Good Design Award trophy in Sydney. Special guest, Jan Utzon (son of Jorn Utzon, who designed the Sydney Opera House) presented the Good Design Award® of the Year on stage and congratulated all of the 2018 Winners.
Winners of the Good Design Awards will be showcased to the general public during Vivid Sydney, the world’s biggest festival of light, music and ideas in Sydney from 25-27 May 2018 at the Overseas Passenger Terminal, Circular Quay.
