UWA Currie Hall, 130 Winthrop Avenue was awarded winner of the Multiple Housing category in the 2014 WA Architecture Awards held in the Grand Ballroom at the Crown Casino.   Atelier JV's facade design with Alcom Fabrications of the glazing for the tower at the corner of the site was a major feature of the project and the jury had this to say about it: 

"Separated from the adjacent campus by a heavily trafficked highway, the building makes connections with the wider university community through a sensitive and well-considered material palette. Further reference to the wider university community is made by implementing the striking "lantern in the landscape" on the prominent corner, inspired by the stained glass artwork on the university landmark building, Winthrop Hall."
