Two months ago we gushed over the quality of the 90 odd entries submitted to the 11th Australian Timber Design Awards 2010. The national winners have just been announced across 22 categories, and it was great to see many had included recycled timbers in their designs.
The Spa Sanctuary at Gwinganna in the Gold Coast hinterland used reclaimed timbers from local wharfs, bridges, telegraph poles and old buildings to create a stunningly crafted building !.
The People’s Choice Award was taken out by the Regatta Foreshore Kiosk and Amenities Building located at Lake Macquarie in NSW which included 4 different types of timber, including recycled red ironbark.
Head on over to the Australian Timber Design Awards to read more about the wonderful award winners, and perhaps get a few hints on how you can incorporate recycled timber design into your next creation!
