House Llandudno clinched five local and international awards in 2023 for its unique blend of innovation, collaboration, and seamless integration of form and function.
Its standout feature—the razor-edge off-shutter concrete cast forms—creates an illusion of weightlessness as it elegantly cantilevers over the horizon, disguising the significant structural support required behind it. Achieving these bold concrete structures was an engineering feat accomplished by Bomax Architects and a team of specialists. Explore the detailed account here for an insight into the challenges faced and overcome during the project.
The professional team, including Arup Engineers, WSP Mechanical, Base Projects, and Shevel Simpson QS, collaborated with Bomax to make House Llandudno successful and can be incredibly proud of these achievements. Their unwavering dedication and expertise contributed to the culmination of a residence that pushes the boundaries and secures its place among the best on a global scale. The house received recognition on the international stage with three awards and two commendations. Let’s take a closer look at the awards:
