The Wood Awards started in 1971 as the Carpenters’ Award and was relaunched in 2003 as the Wood Awards.
The Wood Awards is the UK’s premier architecture and furniture competition celebrating excellence in design in the world’s most sustainable material. The Wood Awards is the most respected award for building and design in wood.
The aim of The Wood Awards is to recognise, encourage and promote outstanding design, craftsmanship and installation in wood and wood products.
The Wood Awards has made their mark on the architectural and design landscape, becoming a ‘mark of excellence’ in wood with past Gold Award Winners including Stephen Marshall Architects for the Rothschild Foundation, Glenn Howells Architects for the Savill Building, Simon Conder for Pinion’s Barn and most recently David Morley Architects for The Hurlingham Club Outdoor Pool.
Judges comprise high profile architects, engineers, furniture designer / makers, and wood specialists, and new judges join the panel every year.
