The Brewery Yard wins major architectural award

Tzannes’ innovative adaptive reuse project The Brewery Yard – formerly Irving Street Brewery – part of the $2 billion mixed-use masterplanned urban village, Central Park in Sydney, Australia, has won the Heritage (Creative Adaptation) Award at the 2015 Australian Institute of Architecture awards, NSW Chapter.

This project demonstrates how new highly energy efficient technology can be elegantly integrated with an important historic structure. Designed by Tzannes for Frasers Property and Sekisui House , Stage 1 of the Brewery Yard integrates the equipment for a precinct wide tri-generation plant into the historic Carlton and United Brewery building on the fringe of the central business district in Sydney Australia. The tri generation plant will supply power and hot and cold water to the mixed-use development which includes 2,200 residential apartments and 20,000sqm of retail space, together with significant public space and 6,400 sqm of public parkland.
