Award for Aqui and Promenade Image

NewQuay residential buildings Aqui and Promenade have recently won Silver in the 2017 Melbourne Design Awards’ architecture category.

Aqui and Promenade received the Award of Excellence for being on the highest level of environmental performance and for their innovative exterior and interior designs.

The Architecture – Residential – Construction category of Melbourne Design Awards celebrates the design process, space and ambience that reflect functional, technical, social and aesthetic considerations.

The twin parallelogram-shaped Aqui and Promenade buildings, with a shared six-level podium, were completed in 2015.

The complex, developed by MAB Corporation and designed by Woods Bagot, comprises 436 one, two and three-bedroom apartments.

Aqui and Promenade’s exterior design features sheer glass facades and the interiors echo the history of the docks.

The facilities in the buildings also include a 25-metre indoor swimming pool, a residents’ library with private meeting room, a public arcade for pedestrian access and a podium rooftop garden with outdoor dining and barbecue areas that overlook the future NewQuay Central Park.

The Melbourne Design Awards recognise achievements in architecture, tech and app design, products and advertising.

The Quays apartment buildings and Monument Park in NewQuay have previously won Melbourne Design Awards.
