Suters Architects has been recognised for its expertise in the design of aquatic, recreation and sport facilities with three recent award wins, a short listing and a new major sports project appointment.
The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design has awarded Suters’ Punt Road Oval project in Victoria with an International Architecture Award. Architecture, urban planning and landscape architecture projects from over 28 nations were considered for their design excellence by a distinguished jury of European architects and educators.
The Punt Road Oval facility, designed for Richmond Football Club, is an elite, multi-purpose sporting facility that combines high performance training, treatment and recovery, education, workplace and retail components. Significantly, the design also successfully creates a legibility of architecture that speaks to the Australian Rules Football fan, one driven on identity, ‘tiger’ pride and loyalty.

The project was awarded Commercial Outdoor Pool winner (sponsored by Pentair Water) and Project of the Year (sponsored by Sunbather). [Read more…]
