Wood you believe it: another award nomination

We’re delighted to reveal that the Colyer-Fergusson Music Building has been shortlisted for the Wood Awards 2013, which celebrate excellence in design in wood.

cf_hall_webIt is one of thirty UK architecture, furniture and design projects that feature wood to be selected for the awards’ shortlist. The winners, including the main Gold Award, will be announced at a ceremony in London on 19 November hosted by the Worshipful Company of Carpenters.

This follows on from our RIBA National Award for architectural excellence earlier this year, when we were one of only two buildings in the Southeast to win an award and one of forty-three to win nationally.

Designed by Tim Ronalds Architects, the Colyer-Fergusson Music Building is notable for its wide range of innovative design features, which include the extensive use of wood.

Fingers crossed…
