Big Wins for Woods Bagot at PCA Innovation and Excellence Awards

Global architecture studio Woods Bagot has been rewarded for its forward-thinking approach with three accolades at the prestigious PCA Innovation and Excellence Awards in Sydney, attended by 1000 industry professionals.

Reflecting the broad skill set of the Woods Bagot team, the awards were for a trio of different types of best-in-class design work.

The mixed-use precinct at 80 Collins Street in Melbourne – the first premium-grade office tower and largest commercial development in the city’s CBD on completion – took out the award for Best Development Innovation.

Sustainability and performance are important elements of the complex project comprising a new commercial tower, boutique hotel, renovations to the existing commercial tower, and a podium base linking the entire block.

The revitalisation of the lobby at Central Park Tower, Perth, won the People’s Choice Award, for bringing light and elegance to the previously austere entrance area while respecting the base building architecture.

Key drivers of the Central Park lobby redesign were to reinforce the sense of community and enhance visual connection to the surrounding park landscape. Woods Bagot has subsequently completed luxurious end of trip facilities for the building.

The award for Best Office Development went to 3 Parramatta Square with architecture by JPW and a stunning integrated fit-out for tenant NAB by Woods Bagot featuring an incredible interior staircase.
