The competition of “Sustainable Building of the Year 2014” came to an end.

Lendager Architects is proud to be recognized amongst the finalists which included  Snøhetta, tp bennett, HASSELL, Perkins+Will and Collingridge & Smith Architects

“Reviewing the six finalists to select the overall winner was long debated as the final six projects had each tackled sustainability issues in different ways in accordance to location and materials readily available. Lendager Architects Upcycle House made use of found and reclaimed materials, tackling carbon reduction during construction. The Powerhouse Kjørbo in Oslo, Norway by Snøhetta, meanwhile, uses reclaimed buildings that will give back more energy than they use. The panel members each had their work cut out, but eventually the final choice was between the VanDusen Botanical Garden Centre, the University of Queensland Global Change Institute and 1 Embankment Place.”

We are very proud to announce that the Upcycle House was recognized for its ”excellence in design” and shortlisted for the award of sustainable building of the year!
