Bold Use of BlueScope Products Sees Building Designs Win Big

Three outstanding building projects have used COLORBOND® steel products from Bluescope to pave the way to success at this year’s Building Designers Association of Victoria Building Design awards.

The Awards, created by the Building Designers Association of Victoria (BDAV), are now in their 22nd year. This year, the awards were held at the National Gallery of Victoria, hosted by comedian Tim Ross.

Three projects in particular were recognized for their use of materials,
with judges marvelling at the use of COLORBOND® steel to create unique solutions to meet clients’ needs.


Cheese House
Cheese House, designed by Positive Footprints Pty Ltd, was named so because of its wedgeshaped roof, made of COLORBOND® steel. Tieing in seamlessly, the cladding used in the project is made from COLORBOND® steel corrugated material. Cheese House took out Best Environmentally Sustainable Alteration & Additions (Residential) at the Building Design Awards.

Fold House
The striking fold shape of Fold House’s façade uses COLORBOND® Metallic steel cladding in the colour Celestian®, to create an unforgettable form. The design firm, In2 Pty Ltd, was awarded Best Residential Design: New House $500K-$1M at the recent Awards.


M8 Project
Corrugated roof and flashing made from COLORBOND® steel was used by Nagy Design Pty Ltd to create a low maintenance outdoor living space. It was this thoughtful exterior, done on an extremely modest budget that led to M8 Project winning Most Innovative Small Works Project at the Awards.

All three COLORBOND® steel projects are showcased in this year’s Awarded magazine, available in news agencies now.

When you purchase COLORBOND® steel you are buying products made and backed by BlueScope. BlueScope offers a range of warranties of up to 36 years to eligible applicants for peace of mind.

The BDAV Building Design Awards profile excellence in building design, promoting the importance of the building design profession to both the building industry and the wider community.
