Verosol presents Sustainability Award at 2015 Houses Awards
As a proud sponsor for the second consecutive year, Verosol has had the honour of presenting the Sustainability Category winner in the Houses Awards. In an annual celebration of residential design excellence in Australia, the Houses Awards continues to showcase some of the most astounding projects and works across the nation. At the Awards ceremony on July 31st, Verosol’s Managing Director Nicolas Rayer was pleased to present this year’s Sustainability Award winner, ‘QV8’ by Breathe Architecture.
“We are pleased to renew our support of the Houses Awards, for the sustainability category. The National Gallery of Victoria was the perfect backdrop for a great evening. At the very heart of our values at Verosol is the desire to innovate, create a more environmentally sustainable world, provide energy savings and comfort in homes and buildings. Therefore what we consider a natural fit to the movement of the Houses Awards. Congratulations to Breathe architects for this achievement, the second year running,” Nicolas Rayer, Managing Director of Verosol.
The QV8 project delivers an insightful solution to sustainable solutions for our cities, with its mantra “Housing people, not cars”. The development is a former car park found within the base of a 37 storey tower in Melbourne’s QV Block. The truly impressive transformation has repurposed the space into a series of long and generous apartments with open ends, achieving cross-ventilation. QV8 has been awarded this category award as its sustainable and innovative reuse of existing infrastructure is to be highly commended, and creates a gateway for architects to follow.
Verosol’s continued support for the Sustainability Award signifies the company’s global stance on the rising importance of environmental and sustainable considerations in both residential and commercial design and development. Since 1965, Creating a Better Environment has been at the core of Verosol’s activities, with a sustained focus on innovation to deliver a range of products designed to contribute to significant energy savings.
