World's Best 2017-2018

URUGUAY

URUGUAY 2017-2018 Altius Group – Developer w: www.altius.com.uy In partnership with Peninsula Investiments Group w: www.peninsulainvestments.com Altius Group, in partnership with Peninsula Investments Group, is developing a tower that is located in downtown Montevideo, Uruguay. Nostrum Bay is an affordable housing, high-rise building that will include both residences and some retail space at street level. For this project, Altius commissioned Carlos Ott Architects in association with Carlos Ponce de León. The resulting double award-winning project is part of a new generation of tall buildings in the country and forms one of the most distinctive examples. Its dramatic shape rises next to the Bahia de Montevideo shore and port, creating a striking natural landmark. The building will have 17,790m² of built area including three retail spaces, parking facilities for 103 vehicles and 193 residential lists. The exterior of the tower dazzles, as the client requested, while the interior toys with a soft tension between a high-tech maritime look and a lavish, yet warm, aesthetic. In order to make the most of the tower’s location, all apartments have open views over the city while a core enclosing its facilities forms the central spinal column of the building. The top floor was specially required to have some of Nostrum Bay’s residents’ amenities as well as two barbecues and roof terraces with panoramic views towards the city, bay and Cerro de Montevideo. Nostrum Bay will become one of the iconic scenes of Montevideo. It will not only be a landmark from which the urban panorama can be experienced but also an outstanding silhouette in the skyline of Montevideo.

HONG KONG Inarc Design has won the Best International Leisure Architecture Award with its design of The HillTop Clubhouse for The Hong Kong Jockey Club. This stunning building speaks about time, place, memory and cultural symbolism and at the same time evokes lightness and transparency. This unique building form has also been layered horizontally with its internal activities and material finishes. The podium, which accommodates the main vehicular drop-off area, car parking and building plant, has been clad in a charcoal grey granite with accents of beige limestone. This reflects the past long-standing building on this site and the memory of the British colonial period of Hong Kong. The pool deck, which accommodates a 50-metre swimming pool with surrounding terrace areas, has been enclosed in a gun-metal grey window wall system to visually separate the light horizontal tower above with the solid podium below. The horizontal tower, which accommodates the various venues, has been clad in a silver champagne curtain wall to reinforce and reflect the cultural symbolism in Asia of the traditional building material of woven bamboo and of folding screens originating in China during the Han dynasty. The roof, which accommodates four tennis courts, has been enclosed within a permeable metal screen to conceal them from the surrounding neighbourhood and to provide a visual ‘crown’ to the building. The architectural vision for the appearance of this building form was to evoke lightness and transparency during the day and also at night. This vision of a ‘lantern’ building at night was inspired by traditional Chinese lanterns used for festive occasions because lanterns are a symbol of ‘reunion’. 2017-2018 Inarc Design Hong Kong Limited 9/F, Yu Yuet Lai Building 43-55 Wyndham Street, Central Hong Kong t: +852 2868 2348 f: +852 2868 4482 e: spinolo@inarc.com w: www.inarc.com BEST INTERNATIONAL LEISURE ARCHITECTURE The HillTop Clubhouse, The Hong Kong Jockey Club by Inarc Design Hong Kong Limited BEST LEISURE ARCHITECTURE ASIA PACIFIC The HillTop Clubhouse, The Hong Kong Jockey Club by Inarc Design Hong Kong Limited BEST LEISURE ARCHITECTURE HONG KONG The HillTop Clubhouse, The Hong Kong Jockey Club by Inarc Design Hong Kong Limited International Property Awards 29
