Riverlink building wins architectural award
Architecture firm CHROFI has received an international architecture award for its work on The Levee’s Riverlink building.
Announced earlier this month in London, the building was named as the Best Public-Use Project with Public Funding at the Blueprint Awards, which recognise architecture and design projects from around the world.
Nominations in the category included projects such as Maersk Tower in Copenhagen, London Bridge Station in London, Tanderrum Bridge in Melbourne, Dongziguan Villagers’ Activity Centre in China, and Salle Salvador Allende in France.
The $9.92 million building was completed earlier this year and was funded by the NSW Government’s Resources for Regions program. The works also included upgrades to the Bourke Street Link and Riverside Walk.
“The Riverlink is one of my favourite buildings, so it’s no surprise to me that it has been recognised with such a prestigious international architectural award,” Maitland mayor Loretta Baker said.
“To be named alongside several significant projects located in globally recognised cities around the world is remarkable.
“It’s an icon for the city and I’m so proud of what it represents for our community.”
