Now in its fourth year, the Intergrain Timber Vision Awards are designed to celebrate the innovative ways timber is used in residential and commercial projects. This year's categories include Exterior Residential, Interior Residential, Exterior Commercial and Interior Commercial.
Intergrain Brand Manager, Krystal Brabham, said the Intergrain Timber Vision Awards aim to highlight the great work of industry professionals in pushing the boundaries of timber design.
"Each year the awards continue to build with outstanding entries across all four categories. Last year was no exception, with entries showcasing striking and unique timber applications. This year we're expecting an even higher number of entries, which illustrate the extraordinary talent of Australian architects and designers," Brabham said.
"We are particularly looking for projects that move away from traditional timber applications, exuding creativity and style, while demonstrating the significant role timber plays in architectural design," she added.
The entries will be evaluated by a prestigious judging panel including 2012 Commercial Exterior winner - Hamish Lyon, Principal and Design Director at NH Architecture (VIC); Virginia Kerridge, Principal of Virginia Kerridge Architect (NSW); Cameron Bruhn, Editorial Director at Architecture Media (VIC) and Douglas Curr, Dulux Specification & Project Services Consultant.
Winners will receive a $2,000 cash prize plus Intergrain product to the value of $5,000, while also gaining industry exposure with a feature in the November edition of Architecture Australia.
Entries close on Friday 28 June. The winners will be announced in August at the Intergrain Timber Vision Awards Breakfast to be held in Melbourne.
Last year's winners included: NH Architecture (Commercial Exterior), Searle x Waldron Architecture (Commercial Interior), Peter Elliot Architecture + Urban Design (Landscape - discontinued category), M.O.D.O (Residential Exterior) and Silvester Fuller (Residential Interior).
