2017  AIA Victorian Chapter - Allan and Beth Coldicutt Award for Sustainable Architecture

Project: South East Water – BVN

The building is designed to complement its location on Frankston’s foreshore and provide a new public facility for the local community incorporating generous public spaces, cafes and a retail zone along a large verandah which wraps around the building. 

The building has a domestic scaled entry with an indigenous garden that reflects a "beach house" setting.

To break up the building’s mass and its 100m length, the building is expressed as three parts, articulated externally with differing façades and internally as separate "places" within. A glazed central section opens up the inner workings of the workplace to the external realm, and provides  views out to Port Phillip Bay.

Bonacci Group is proud to be a part of this great public space in the community and acknowledges the hard work of our staff.
