WAF 2012 Winner ‘Civic & Community’ : Salorge Town Community Building / by Atelier Arcau


Atelier Arcau has won the civic and community award for its response to ‘a boring brief in a boring suburban context’. The architect, the judges said, transformed the brief ‘by a beautifully simple brief without forcing an agenda.’ The building, they said, ‘is unique to its context due to respecting a local archetype,’ and praised the architect for ‘making something out of nothing, for a discrete solution for sustainability and for dealing with a low budget’.
