LEAF judging panel announces winner of LEAF Awards 2014 

The LEAF judging panel has announced the winners of this year's LEAF awards - which span 14 categories - noting all winning projects demonstrate "buildings that are setting the benchmark for the international architectural and design community".

Ateliers Jean Nouvel and PTW Architects came out on top as overall winner this year with One Central Park in Sydney, Australia. The architects also won the Best Sustainable Development of the Year with the same building.

The two towers (33 and 16 storeys, respectively) feature green walls with 21 plant-covered panels comprising 25 different species. 38 penthouse apartments also have access to a stunning garden in the sky. And, thanks to a large panel of mirrors, light is also reflected into the lower levels of the building.

The towers are linked by a recreation podium containing 623 apartments as well as an urban shopping centre built in a parkland setting, and incorporate a Central Thermal Plant and Water Recycling Plant at the heart of the development that achieves a 5 star Green Rating.

"The incorporation of this technology alone sets the development apart, but it’s the astonishing cantilevered Heliostat with its array of adjustable mirrors forming a shimmering canopy, and the vertical gardens and green terraces providing a curtain of foliage turning the pristine floor to ceiling glazing into a Hi Tec ‘tree house’ that delights in equal measure," the judges commented
