The winners of the 2017 Intergrain Timber Awards were revealed in Melbourne last week.
From a shortlist of 31 projects, 14 projects were recognised for their visionary use of timber. The projects were awarded across five building categories, including Commercial Exterior, Commercial Interior, Residential Exterior, Residential Interior and Landscape.
Among the winners was North Bondi Amenities by Sam Crawford Architects with Lymesmith. The project in the Sydney suburb of North Bondi reimagines the template of the boxy, double-brick public bathroom that is unbefitting of our signature Australian beaches. In place of the bricks is a modulated timber skin that is slotted to allow fresh air to penetrate the building. The project was the winner of the Commercial Exterior project.
Other winners from this year’s awards included City of Perth Library by Kerry Hill Architects, Amado House by MAKE architecture, Little Sister's House by Candalepas Associates, and Kopupaka Reserve by Isthmus Group.
