Four Aedas’ projects recognised at A&D Trophy Awards 2015

Four Aedas’ projects were awarded Certificates of Excellence at A&D Trophy Awards 2015. The recognised projects include:
· Center 66, Wuxi, China [Architecture (Professional) Commercial, Retail or Office]
· The Forum, Hong Kong [Architecture (Professional) Commercial, Retail or Office]
· Gramercy, Hong Kong [Architecture (Professional) Residential]
· Renhe Spring Residential Development, Chengdu, China [Architecture (Professional) Residential]

Center 66, designed by Executive Directors Christine Lam and David Clayton, is a mixed-use development consisting of two office towers and the city’s largest shopping mall. The three striking glass atria enclosing the mall evolve as the ideal response to the site’s circulation patterns, distribution of natural light, and arrangement of volumes. The project also preserved two historic theatre stages and a hall dating from the Ming dynasty at the heart of the site and integrated them into a large public plaza.

The Forum redevelopment is a holistic design by Chairman Keith Griffiths, integrating a new office building, sculpture park and events plaza and thereby revitalising the entire Exchange Square development. The compact and exquisitely detailed new building opens up the site visually and physically, creating a significant public space designed as a series of stone platforms linked with water features and planting. The design is inspired by precious gems. The perfect cube of the building is dramatically tilted to create a grand entrance from the plaza.

Gramercy sits just adjacent to the vibrant lifestyle of SOHO in the Mid-Levels. Designed by Executive Director Cary Lau, the residence deliberately embraces the vibrancy of the street by incorporating many terraces which extend the outdoor dining experience from SOHO to this area. In addition, more interactive programmes are provided at the podium level such as F&B venues to interact with the street at the lower half of the three-storey podium, while the upper floors are designed for clubhouse usage including a swimming pool amidst a landscaped garden.

Also designed by Cary Lau, Renhe Spring Residential Development is part of a mixed-used project in Chengdu. The entrance to the development is defined by a colonnade which leads to a viewing deck while a central landscaped area with an artificial waterfall serves as a picturesque backdrop for the development. 

The A&D Trophy Awards (previously The Perspective Awards) were created in 2004 to celebrate excellence in architecture, interior design and product design across Asia-Pacific and beyond. One of the design industry’s most sought-after accolades, the A&D Trophy Awards aim to promote and motivate industry
design standards to the next level in Asia-Pacific.
