A&D Trophy Awards Winner
Our project "Paramit - factory in the forest" has won the A&D Trophy Awards 2019 (Hong Kong) in the Professional Architecture category for "Commercial, Retail and Office". The jury particularly highlighted the sustainable design aspects of the project writing that "environmental principles and sustainability were integral to the design process" and that the "climatically responsive building [is] energy and water efficient". The jury also highlights that the occupants of the building are provided with "daylight and biophilia – the need to connect with nature", as proven in our anonymous post-occupancy survey showing that 90% of the building occupants preferred the new factory to the old factory.
The Asia-Pacific award (previously known as The Perspective Awards) were created in 2004 to celebrate excellence in architecture, interior design and product design. The jury panel consists of expert local and international judges. In this case, the Professional Architecture jury comprise of Dara Huang (Design Haus Liberty, London & Hong Kong), Piero Lissoni (Lissoni Associati/Graph.x/Lissoni Architettura/Lissoni Inc, Milan), William Lim (CL3 Architects, Hong Kong), Heidar Sadeki (Richardson Sadeki, New York) and Song Zhaoqing (Lacime Architects, Shanghai).
