The Baku White City office building received awards for Office Architecture and Office Development at the Asia Pacific Property Awards, last week.
A total of 429 awards were presented to 260 companies from 23 countries. Lord Bates from the House of Lords in British Parliament presented the winning companies with special plaques during awards presentations.
The Baku project features offices, as well as commercial areas, with a striking plaza planned for the front of the building where the foundation stone of Baku White City is situated.
It provides an installation of high-speed elevators and uses double-façade sound and thermo-insulation.
Along with landscaping, installation of solar as an alternative energy solution indicates the project’s environmental sustainability.
Baku White City Office building became well-known among architects as it was repeatedly nominated as “The Best Project of the Future’ at international exhibitions as well as being the winner of the MIPIM Asia Awards in 2011 for “Best Project of the future of Central and West Asia.” It also received an award for “Best Project” at Cityscape Global in 2011.
