HONOURABLE MENTION (Institutional Project)
HONOURABLE MENTION (Interior Architecture Project)

The architect created a well-crafted civic object that remains open to its surroundings. The sharp detailing has achieved a lightness and screen-like quality to the building.

The cylindrical form is appropriately truncated to respond to the heritage buildings and to allow the northern sun to enter the cathedral plaza.

The interior spaces are clearly structured with a sense of hierarchy. As the cylinder opens up, the quality of light changes and imbues spaces with variety of character.
