Multiple successes for dwp in the Design Awards Season – The Delightful Gift of Industry Recognition

In recent weeks dwp | design worldwide partnership has been honoured to have multiple projects, across different sectors, nominated for prestigious architecture and design industry awards.

Our team at dwp is proud to be receiving this form of acknowledgement in multiple countries and across different sectors, demonstrating that we are delivering the highest standard designs in all that we do.

Four Awards for Bangkok Luxury Interiors Project

Condo development has raised the benchmark in luxury condominium design especially within the South-East Asian region. dwp’s lifestyle team based out of our Bangkok studio has designed multiple inspirational and luxurious living spaces throughout. Lifestyle and hospitality design is a major speciality for dwp. We are delighted that one of our latest projects has received the top awards in four categories at the PropertyGuru Thailand Property Awards 2021. Alongside ‘Best Luxury Condo Interior Design’ (dwp) it also was awarded ‘Best Smart Building Design’, ‘Best Luxury Condo Architectural Design’ and ‘Best Luxury Condo Development’.

“Lifestyle and Hospitality design excellence has been the cornerstone of dwp design work in Asia since our practice was founded by Scott Whittaker and others in the 1990s. We have since grown and strengthened further, with added impetus and now we are delivering projects in Japan, New Zealand and the Middle East. We have reestablished our studios in Shanghai and Singapore over the last few years and winning awards and industry recognition is a fantastic accolade for our global design team. I would particularly like to congratulate Nadia Dahlan and the Bangkok dwp lifestyle design studio.”

The dwp designed Eric Tweedale Stadium at Granville Park also was on the shortlist for the same award and has also received much attention since its completion and its official opening last month. On the 30th November it was the recipient of the respected Australian Timber Design Awards, as the overall winner as well as award winner for Commercial & Public Buildings and Excellence in Engineering. This award is particularly significant to dwp due to it’s sustainable design, a perfect example of dwp’s design ethos and pledge to ‘Design for a Better world’.

“Sustainable design is central to what we do at dwp and therefore environmental sustainability was an important objective of the project and timber construction was key to achieving this. The use of a mass timber structure in the Stadium is the first use of glulam timber for this type of facility in Australia and represents an impressive achievement and benchmark in timber engineering.”
Ivana Simkovic, Design Director Sydney – dwp | design worldwide partnership.

The Australian Timber Design Awards celebrate the design and construction of structures that feature timber. Now in their 22nd year, the Awards are distinguished by a proud heritage of winning projects that demonstrate innovation. The Awards promote and encourage outstanding timber design. Winning this award is testament to dwp’s exceptional design skills, commitment to sustainability and dedication to dwp’s practice ethos ‘Design for a Better world’.

The design of the Eric Tweedale Stadium is driven by the stadium’s connection to the local environment and history of the Cumberland Plains. Located within Granville Park, it’s form and materiality respond to the site’s heritage as much as to its current sporting environment. The Stadium includes a grandstand with change rooms, multipurpose room, first-floor function space, commercial kitchen and outdoor viewing deck. The glulam roof cantilevers over eight meters over the seating, creating a simple yet strikingly beautiful form that also gives historical reference to the forest that once dominated the site. The use of a mass timber structure in the Stadium is the first use of glulam timber for this type of facility in Australia, representing an impressive achievement in architectural design and timber engineering.

“The Eric Tweedale Stadium is a truly outstanding project and it is the outcome of great work by a cohesive project team led by an exceptional Design Director, Ivana Simkovic of dwp Sydney studio. The team included the Cumberland City Council client with a clear vision, the supportive end-users and project stakeholders, skilled engineers and resilient builders who worked through the challenges of the last two years. They have collectively created a beautiful building that celebrates its place and its purpose. It’s simply fantastic to win the Australian Timber Design Award 2021. I congratulate everyone involved and I especially want to thank Cumberland City Council for supporting our design vision. We also would like to extend our appreciation to our colleagues at Northrop Engineers who shared the drive for sustainable design solutions, Belmadar, the contractor and Rubner who supplied the timber, as well as all other consultants who worked with us on this project. Thank you to the Timber Development Association for this recognition – we are honoured to be the recipients of this award.”
