WAF 2016 awards two projects

World Architecture Festival

The Investcorp Building and our concept for the a.spire have both been announced as winners at World Architecture Festival 2016 in Berlin.

In the higher education & research building category, the Zaha Hadid-designed Investcorp Building at St Anthony’s College in Oxford was named as best in the world. This modern academic space is an elegantly curved structure of timber and exposed concrete, with stainless steel façade that tastefully contrasts with the surrounding historic fabric.

In the future office category, our unrealised concept, a.spire, was the winner. This unique design was developed with Nabil Gholam Architects to be a new bank headquarters in Beirut.
