Success at the 2014 UDIA Awards for Excellence!

18 December 2014

JMC and project architects IMA have successfully taken part in the Urban Development Institute of Australia’s (UDIA) Victorian Awards for Excellence 2014.

These awards annually acknowledge the best in urban development across the state and recognize entrants for their standout commitment to excellence in one or more of the award categories.

WillowPark, developed and built by JMC in Maidstone, was recognized in two categories – Masterplanned Development and Medium Density Development.

The urban form of the WillowPark is varied. JMC and architects Interlandi Mantesso Architects adopted a conscious approach at the onset of the design process, to establish a residential development that would evolve in architectural form and composition over the duration of the development. This would enable WillowPark to emphasize a sense of community via an architectural response of contemporary built forms, with various heights and materiality contributing to a skyline that would set a new preferred neighbourhood character.

A generous centrally located parkland and waterway are accessible to all residents and enhance a sense of community allowing children to play and families to socialize together. Retail facilitates along the entrance to WillowPark further provide for the community and notably the owners corporation is located in this area allowing residents and owners to communicate with ease.

What makes this multi residential development so unique and successful is the fact that that each and every building, of each respective stage has its own identity and character.

Recognizing the breadth of this development and its intricacies, JMC were proudly awarded the Judges Award for Excellence by the Victorian UDIA board.

Managing Director, Martin Wagg, said “Receiving the Judges Award for Excellence for WillowPark was extremely rewarding and a great sense of achievement for the JMC team and all concerned. It really shows what can be achieved when you have a passionate group of people with a tireless pursuit to produce something special!”
