It’s no secret that we love timber, so we were excited to find out the winners for the 2020 Australian Timber Design Awards. This year the awards were announced at a virtual event, with BVN and TTW receiving first prize for their stunning project - Marrickville Library.
“The Marrickville library and community centre is located on the site of the former Marrickville Hospital site which closed in 1990. It's crafted inside and out with timber which is used for its columns, façade, screening, internal walls, window/door frames, tiered seating, joinery, ceilings and furniture. The use of the timber creates a space which is welcoming, warm and homely, creating a building that the community enjoys and wants to occupy.”
