Rivière won the Lord Mayor’s Buildings That Breathe Prize, which recognises outstanding architecture that demonstrates strong alignment with Brisbane City Council’s New World City Design Guide – Buildings that Breathe. The design principles outlined in the Council’s guide include:

  • showcasing high standards of design and construction
  • creating an enviable and lush urban environment

  • stimulating economic activity

Rivière was also commended in the Residential Architecture – Multiple Housing category. Read the list of winning projects in the region on ArchitectureAU.
