Baalijin House Awarded Commendation in AIA Country Division 2013 Awards

Fisher Design + Architecture received a commendation for Baalijin House, a new home located in Bellingen, in the Residential Architecture – Affordable Housing under $350 000 section.

Nestled into a green urban hillside, Baalijin House was designed with a focus on affordability, sustainability, and appropriateness for the site. The jury commended FD+A for “combining a thoughtful layered plan with tactile materials to produce a simple, warm, well crafted house.”

The house has also been selected as one of eight finalists in the New Single Dwelling category of the 2013 BPN Sustainability Awards. “We are honoured just to be a finalist for this national award which recognizes sustainable building design” Christian Fisher said.
