WISH Takes Out Master Builders Award
On Friday 22 October, TP Dynamics were honoured to receive the 2021 Master Builders and Asset Hire Construction Excellence Award in the category of Apartments and Units Up to 3 Storeys for our WISH development in Bruce.
WISH marked the beginning of an ambitious three-stage project to contribute to the revitalisation of the Bruce precinct. The winning entry covers Buildings 2 to 5 of the WISH complex, consisting of 48 townhouses of 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms – all with basement car parking.
When we created WISH, we wanted something that would nestle into the peaceful, established suburb, with its eucalyptus-lined streets and nearby parkland. We feel that WISH reflects its surrounds by incorporating treelined driveways, BBQ areas, well-landscaped gardens and pathways.
We partnered with FMB Architects to develop a striking architectural design, combining bright-white rendered exteriors with black corrugated panels and window frames. The change of materials is enhanced by façades which step in an out as well as up and down, creating playful articulation that carries through to the interior. Feature awnings at the front entrance elevate the experience of coming home or welcoming guests.
Once inside, the stylish and elegant townhouses are split over two floors, with a focus on high-end inclusions throughout. Residences have 100% wool carpets, engineered laminate timber flooring for durability, beautiful stone benchtops, tiled splashbacks, Smeg appliances and Dorf tapware.
We wanted WISH residents to be able to spill outside, either into their private courtyards or communal spaces. To this end, we’ve incorporated a generous children’s playground as well as a covered outdoor space for residents and their guests to enjoy and relax in.
Forward-looking design is important to us, which is why the townhouses achieve an impressive average energy efficiency rating of 7.5 stars, aided by double-glazed windows throughout.
WISH is part of a larger transformation project and so we have designed it to deliver excellent connectivity through and around the site, including linkages to the second and third stages (RISE and IVES).
Congratulations to the WISH Project Team and subcontractors for their outstanding work on this project, and to the wider TP Dynamics team for their support, a special thanks to FMB Architects for their dedication and attention to detail.
Thank you to the Master Builders ACT, Asset Construction Hire and Earth Moving Equipment Australia, who sponsored this award.
