The Concrete Institute of Australia recently announced the winners for the 2017 Awards for Excellence in Concrete. The Queensland Residential category was taken out by none other than the AGDF’s very own Corporate sponsor, Built Environment Collective with their stunning Clifftop House project.
Joe Adsett Architects chose John Tuxworth and the team at BE Collective to provide coordinated Structural and Hydraulic consulting engineering services for the project. The Clifftop House project dramatically transformed a low-set brick home into a spectacular 5-bedroom triumph, spanning three floors with a pool, gym, green roof and breath-taking river views from its cliff-top perch. Off form concrete was used to create sharp, tectonic elements that respond to, and jut out above, the sheer cliff face below. Internally, these hard finishes are countered by sumptuous, warm materials to create a safe, comfortable and nurturing residential environment – almost as if hewn out of the cliff face itself.
BE Collective has been a long-time supporter of the Australian Green Development Forum and is looking forward to becoming more closely involved as John Tuxworth – BEC’s managing director – was recently elected AGDF president.
