MULPHA’S ESSENTIA “smart” townhome development in Norwest has received a gold award in the Sydney Design Awards 2020 in the Architecture- Residential- Constructed category. Essentia was designed by international award-winning Architectural firm, A+ Design group.
Mulpha Developments Executive General Manager Tim Spencer said winning the award was welcome recognition for the quality, design and innovations of Essentia.
“This development is not only architecturally designed with beautiful finishes,but is emotionally designed. A home is someone’s castle, the place that embodies their interpretation of their life journey and is the place that enriches their today in order to shape their tomorrow – I believe Essentia has delivered on the design brief of ‘homes for your soul’.”
All 74 of the newly constructed Essentia townhomes on Fairway Drive in Norwest also integrate the latest smart technology with wellness-in-design principles.
Tony Leung, founder and CEO of A+ Design Group, who handcrafted the winning architecture design work at Essentia said: “The external design is varied in texture, material and colour, so that each home has its own identity.
“The facades have a sense of depth and relief, with materials and colour tones that complement the natural surrounds. The design intent is to capture the simple elements of life – the breath of wind, the cross flowing air, the sense of shelter, the diversity of textures, forms and material palette, as well as the playful articulation of shadow and light. The design also draws energy from the sun.”
He said one of the main pillars in the design is the wellness centre and central meeting place surrounded by terraces that bring the community together and feature a light-filled pool, gym, library and yoga retreat plus an outdoor BBQ area surrounded by lush landscaping.
