Creative and visionary timber projects are being sought for the 2014 Intergrain Timber Vision Awards.

Designed to celebrate the innovative use of timber, the Intergrain Timber Vision Awards recognises the visionary work of industry professionals.

The awards are open to Australian and New Zealand architects, building designers, landscape architects, interior designers and other design professionals.

This year’s categories include Exterior Residential, Interior Residential, Exterior Commercial and Interior Commercial.

Intergrain Trade Brand Manager, Amanda Chalmers said the awards aim to celebrate projects that push timber design boundaries, with the growing trend towards timber as a construction material seeing the Timber Vision awards as an appropriate place for ideas and innovation to manifest.

“Last year’s entries were phenomenal, showcasing outstanding industry talent. Each year the calibre of entries continues to grow and we’re expecting this year, our fifth consecutive year, to be no exception,” she said.

“Timber continues to be a growing trend in both commercial and residential design, and with this movement, projects are breaking away from traditional applications to using timber in new and innovative ways. We can’t wait to receive entries which speak to this sentiment, once again highlighting the important role timber plays in Australian architecture.”

Winners will receive a $2,000 cash prize plus Intergrain products to the value of $5,000.

Entries close on Friday 27 June and the winners will be announced in August at an awards breakfast to be held in Melbourne.  

The judging panel for this year’s award includes:

Rob Backhouse, Managing Director of Hassell

Elizabeth Watson-Brown, Design Director at Architectus

Cameron Bruhn from Architecture Media
