Urban Design Awards 2010

Presenting The Winning Entries for the 2010 MUD Awards

The Mississauga Urban Design Awards is an annual competition to find projects that best exemplify the City's design principles and their ongoing work to promote excellence in urban design.

Award of Excellence: AeroCentre V

This commercial office infill project is an excellent example of intensification.  It sets a benchmark for other sites in Mississauga by demonstrating how infill development can enhance the surrounding fabric and energize existing uses.  The design is innovative in integrating above-grade parking decks into the building in a well-considered and effective way, especially on the principal facade.  Both the site design and building construction have incorporated a number of environmental and green building technologies which are in keeping with the City of Mississauga's Strategic Plan.

Award of Merit for Community Scale and Execution:  Courtyard House

Set on a corner site in an established neighbourhood, this project cleverly sites the new house to both protect the existing trees on the property, and resolve the unusual and somewhat difficult lot configuration. The building orientation, the main entrance, the relocated  driveway access, and the sensitive infill of a small corner site demonstrates a good example of fitting into the neighbourhood at a community scale. Construction of the building has incorporated a variety of green development design features and materials. The quality of construction materials and the warmth of the wood elements add to the interest of the building.

Award of Merit for Context:  Ultra Ovation

The project nicely completes the hi-rise residential development of the area by providing an effective transition from existing buildings, recoginizing and complementing the form and building materials of the office projects to the west.  The circular building form and stylish rooftop treatment creates a feature which is a focal point when viewed from various vantage points in the neighbourhood.  It is a building that is contextual, helping to complete the streetscape as a good neighbour, while at the same time contributing positively to the developing urban character of the City Centre.
