The shortlist for the 2017 Intergrain Timber Vision Awards, which recognize excellence in the use of timber in the built environment, has been released.

From 158 submissions, 31 projects have been shortlisted in five key categories: Commercial Exterior, Commercial Interior, Residential Exterior, Residential Interior and Landscape. 

Sonia Tousis, Intergrain senior brand manager, observed a shift in the way architects and designers are making use of timber. “We’re starting to see designs incorporating deeper tones and colours through the use of stains and thermal timber treatments,” she said.

“Designers and architects are also exploring with timber in a multitude of ways to add contrast and dimension. The breadth of texture and form across all submissions this year was particularly impressive.” 

The panel of jurors comprised Geoffrey London (professor of architecture, University of Western Australia), Maria Danos (founder, Maria Danos Architecture), Bronwen Kerr (director, Kerr Ritchie Architects), Cameron Bruhn (editorial director, Architecture Media) and Douglas Curr (technical sales and specification manager, Intergrain). 

The winners of the 2017 Intergrain Timber Vision Awards will be announced at an event in Melbourne on 21 September.
