BVN has won gold and silver awards at the Melbourne Design Awards in the Urban Design and Co-Working and Studio Space categories. 

The firm won the gold award in the Urban Design Category for Bunurong Memorial Park, which was designed in collaboration with ASPECT Studios. 

BVN has described Bunurong as “a reimagining of the urban cemetary as a place for the celebration of life”. 

It is designed around a set of distinctive gardens, and the arrangement works as a set of connected intimate and public spaces that are bound by ‘quiet’ buildings with transparent portals that open directly to the garden setting. The space hosts celebrations and activities from weddings to memorial services. 

BVN also won a silver award in the Co-Working and Studio Space category for Space & Co. 

Space & Co is a co-working space designed to respond to the growing demand for greater flexibility in workplaces and property leases. The amenity-rich space includes bespoke workstations and dedicated workspaces that are complemented by meeting areas, board rooms, and a café to create a space designed for the cross-pollination of ideas and member engagement.
