Jansen Che wins 2019 Red Dot Design Award

“The Red Dot is the award for high design quality. The international jury only awards this sought-after seal of quality to works that set themselves apart significantly from comparable works thanks to their excellent design.”

Jansen Che, one of JPW’s registered architects, recently received the Red Dot Design Award at the 2019 Red Dot Concept Design award ceremony, held in Singapore.

Jansen was awarded for his design of a minimalist watch, Adesse. Adesse reimagines the traditional analog watch with minimalist principles, and questions what is absolutely necessary to tell the time. It reveals just enough to tell the time, removing all distractions, reminding the wearer to enjoy the present. His design is currently on display at the Red Dot design museum in Singapore.

“Reflection” Memorial Martin Place – 2018 NSW Architecture Awards

“Reflection” Memorial Martin Place by Johnson Pilton Walker and Jess Dare, has received a City of Sydney Lord Mayor’s Commendation in the 2018 NSW Architecture Awards.

The concept for the permanent memorial is based upon creating a subtle reflective and symbolic memory of the floral tribute laid by thousands of people following the December 2014 Martin Place siege. This floral tribute, an unexpected, spontaneous and respectful public and private response encapsulated so simply and eloquently all the complex layers of thought and emotion, public and private, related to this tragic event. The work comprises 210 hand crafted brass powder coated flowers, 12 varieties,19 colours, each flower unique, housed in a mirrored stainless-steel cube inserted flush with the granite pavement of Martin Place arranged in a random starburst pattern creating a visual field of flowers below the pavement. The design, the result of a limited competition, was developed with close consultation and ongoing involvement of the families of the victims, the Department of Premier and Cabinet, Infrastructure NSW, Government Architect and the City of Sydney.

Flanders Fields Memorial Garden

The Flanders Fields Memorial Garden, within the Australian War Memorial’s Western Precinct, was dedicated on 4 April 2017. A ring of Portland Stone, inscribed with overlapping stanzas of John McCrae’s poem “In Flanders Fields”, encourages movement and reflection when experiencing the Memorial Garden.

Soil from Flanders, in which many soldiers found their resting place, has been combined with soils specially collected from significant sites around Australia. It is within this soil that poppies will continue to grow.

Victoria Park is fully open to the public

Victoria Park is one of inner Sydney’s most important and historic parks.

The primary objective of the City of Sydney’s Victoria Park Improvement Project was to upgrade the amenity of the park by identifying a range of improvements that respond to contemporary community needs yet complement the existing and historic character of the place.

Reopened in early 2018, the improvements include upgrades to the path network, new activity nodes with netball and Ping-Pong areas, a new connection to the University of Sydney, new BBQ and seating areas and modifications to the lake to improve water quality and expand urban habitats.

New bio-retention and reed bed systems within Lake Northam, developed in conjunction with Alluvium and Warren Smith & Partners, treat stormwater entering the lake from the surrounding catchment, to greatly improve water quality.

Barangaroo Reserve Wins Major American Prize

The American Architecture Prize honours designs in the disciplines of architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture with the goal of advancing the appreciation of architecture worldwide.

Barangaroo Reserve was selected as the 2017 Winner in the landscape architecture category, from a field of more than a thousand entries from 68 countries across the three disciplines.

Jury Citation:

Named for an influential Aboriginal woman of colonial Sydney, Barangaroo is a globally-significant, 22-hectare waterfront renewal project that redefines Sydney Harbour and its Central Business District.

Barangaroo Reserve was the first phase in the 3-district precinct to open. The project re-creates “Millers Point” headland in its original location by transforming a concrete container port into a naturalistic park with over 75,000 plantings native to the Sydney region.

Guided by historical maps and paintings, the design of the headland includes a foreshore of 10,000 sandstone blocks excavated directly from the site. Walking and bicycle pathways separated by the “1836 Wall” symbolically mark the original precolonial shoreline.

Barangaroo Reserve is carbon-neutral, water-positive, and committed to creating zero waste. Selected as a Clinton Global Initiative, One Planet Living, and C40 Climate Positive development, the project recycled all existing materials onsite to form the headland. Hidden beneath the artificial headland, the “Cutaway” is a massive void formed through the sandstone excavation operations to host art exhibits, performances, and a future Aboriginal Cultural Center.

Barangaroo Reserve transforms a huge expanse of empty concrete into humane, usable space, marking the transformation of an industrialized site into a modern reinvention of its more sustainable past.
