Queensland architects triumph at international awards on behalf of Cox Rayner

A2K Technologies is thrilled to announce the success of one of our long-term customers, Cox Rayner Architects, at the recent World Architecture Festival in Singapore.

Casey and Rebekah Vallance from Cox Rayner were awarded the world house of the year title for their distinctive home, built as an extension to a caretaker's cottage in Paddington, Queensland.

The home looks like a humble worker’s cottage from the street, but features a rooftop barbecue area and lookout, and perforated metal screens to evoke the spirit of Brisbane's pioneering ‘timber and tin’ homes. It took the two Brisbane architects seven years to build on weekends.

The contest was a triumph for Cox Rayner, which won five international awards - including three for a $360 million National Maritime Museum of China at Tianjin, a port city of 14.5 million people south of Beijing.

Cox Rayner also won the international infrastructure prize for its striking Brisbane ferry terminal design that will be adapted to seven new Citycat and ferry terminals to be built along the Brisbane River between the University of Queensland and New Farm at a cost of $20 million.
