Ventura + Partners’ Essenza has just been distinguished as a Grands Prix du Design silver winner. Designed to be experienced, the luxury multifamily housing was awarded in the Architecture – Residential Building category at the 14th edition of the Canadian competition.
This is the fifth time that Essenza building has been awarded in international competitions, being included in the official selection of awards programs such as the German Design Awards, the London International Creative Competition, and the Architect of The Year Awards.
Created in 2007 in Canada with the mission of recognizing the excellence of designers and architects who have distinguished themselves through exemplary practice, the Grand Prix du Design was originally open exclusively to ﬁrms and professionals with a place of business in Québec.
Now, the competition is open to all design and architecture professionals and students, and the projects are evaluated by the distinguished International Jury, made up of 70 leading professionals, prominent academics, and influential press members, recruited on an international scale.
