Smart Design Studio - Sydney Architects


2017 AIA National Architecture Awards

We’re delighted that Indigo Slam has received The Emil Sodersten Award for Interior Architecture at the 2017 Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) National Awards. Commended by the jury as “a vessel for art and life that is an artwork in itself – a perfectly pitched composition of space and light. Indigo Slam represents nothing less than a new design performance benchmark. It is a masterly work of architecture.”

Receiving the National Award for Residential Architecture – Multiple Housing, Crown 515 presents a dynamic form to the street, reinterpreting the terrace in a contemporary design of angular shapes and shimmering tessellated tiles that reveal an active public corner “providing a connective interface and engagement with the public realm.”

We would like to thank the entire design and construction team for both projects, as well as our wonderful clients. Read more about Indigo Slam here and Crown 515 here.

Sydney Saesoon Church

Smart Design Studio converted a former industrial building and its site in North Rocks into an inspiring, functional and welcoming place of worship for the Sydney Saesoon Presbyterian Church. Whilst reinforcing the rigorous modernist aesthetic of the existing building, new openings break down the large scale to provide connections to the outdoors and make apparent the new use of the building.

Winner of the High-Density Development Award from the Urban Development Institute of Australia, Connor at Central Park has been acknowledged by the jury for its durable pallet of materials referencing the local context, sustainable and environmental features and high-quality interior finishes “making Connor a highly desirable place to live. In an outstanding field of entries, Connor is a worthy winner.”

We would like to thank everyone involved with this project, Frasers Property Australia and Sekisui House Australia. Read more about Connor here.
