EXCELLENCE IN USE OF STEEL – BATMAN HOUSE

05 August 2016 /

Clever Design recently won “Excellence in the Use of Steel” at the prestigious Victorian BDAV Building Design Awards.

The Batman House design responds to the site complexities and cues taken from the landmark “cable-stayed” Batman Bridge directly aligned in the background.
Fundamental to the design are the exposed steel bones bearing the tensile architecture which articulates the expressive quality of the use of various steel components.
Selected for its structural integrity, durability and minimal maintenance, the steel was utilised to minimise the bulk and load bearing of traditional double story construction, and at the same time resolve the site soil classification issues.

We love pushing the boundaries of convention and this design provides openness and depth whilst visually connecting and engaging with the magnificent vista and landmark bridge.
The structural components of our builds are integral to our holistic design intent from the very 1st design trigger and always comprehended throughout every twist and turn of our brainstorming process.
We then take this to the max using our 3D software BIMx to model every structural member in our projects to enable full comprehension of the design intent and build.

A huge thanks to the team members involved with Mike in this project, Jaime Jimenez, Rob Booth and Structural Engineer- Mark Gardner.
An enormous congrats goes to the Builder- Elysium Constructions & Developments and their ‘Steely’ Travenco for executing the challenging build to precision.
