The winners of the 2013 Intergrain Timber Vision Awards have been announced, and this year seven projects have been acknowledged. The awards recognize the innovative use of timber in both commercial and residential projects, in interior and exterior applications.
The winners are as follows:
- Commercial Exterior Award: Coolum Beach Streetscaping Project by Carl Holder, product designer/urban artist
- Commercial Interior Award: Captain Melville by Breathe Architecture Commendation: George St Office Fit Out by Form Follows Function
- Residential Exterior Award: House House by Andrew Maynard Architects Commendation: Gordons Bay Residence by Madeleine Blanchfield Architects
- Residential Interior Award: Shearers Quarters by John Wardle Architects Commendations: Fairhaven Residence by John Wardle Architects; House House by Andrew Maynard Architects.
Judges described the Coolum Beach Streetscaping Project as a bold piece of urban design that “responds to day and night and the passing of time and seasons.” They said Captain Melville was an innovative example of recycling that takes a fresh approach to the use of timber in a hospitality environment. House House was described as a timber box that brings domestic warmth and vibrancy to its eclectic setting. Judges said timber is an integral part of the narrative of the design of the Shearers Quarters, connecting it to stories of its historic location.
Judging the 2013 Intergrain Timber Vision Awards were Hamish Lyon (NH Architecture), Virginia Kerridge (Virginia Kerridge Architect), Cameron Bruhn (Architecture Media) and Douglas Curr (Dulux).
