Congratulations to Aileen Sage Architects and our very own Michelle Tabet, as well as the whole team involved in The Pool at the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale for the win at the 2017 Dulux Colour Awards, in the Commercial Interior Public Spaces and Hospitality category! Up against some very high quality competition, the team are thrilled to have won.

The Judging Panel commented, "As a celebration of a distinctly Australian space, this submission really meets the brief and truly depicts Australia. This complex use of colour shows the architect has really considered how varying light might bring the chosen colours to life to mimic the changing patterns of light around a pool over the course of a day. This submission epitomises why investing time in colour selection is so important."

Congratulations also goes to our great friends at Sam Crawford Architects who took out the Grand Prix prize for their North Bondi Amenities project, and all the other winners and commendations.
