2018 Australian Timber Design Award winners announced

Friday 19 Oct 2018

The Annual Australian Timber Design Award winners for 2018 have been announced at The Star in Sydney, where FJMT was crowned overall winner for their work on Bunjil Place. Located in Casey’s entertainment district, just south-east of Melbourne’s CBD, Bunjil Place contains an entrance foyer with a world-class Glulam timber grid-shell in the shape of an eagle with its wings spread.

The remarkable structure seamlessly combines breath taking design with Casey’s unique Aboriginal heritage, drawing on inspiration from the land by the culture’s traditional owners 'The Meeting of Many Paths' and 'Bunjil' the Eagle.

The Glulam timber grid-shell appears to be weightless and hovering, only lightly touching the foyer floor at two points. The compelling use of timber defines a warm and inviting design, further reinforcing the open and welcoming nature of the complex.

Winners were announced at The Star in Sydney, where a large number of members from the Australian timber design and architecture community came together to celebrate the 2018 Australian Timber Design Awards.
