Barangaroo House | Timber Design Award

Barangaroo House took out the prize for Best Timber Cladding at the Timber Design Awards this month. The 3 storey hospitality venue features 42mm acetylated treated concentric timber dowels which wrap around the building as a façade. Individually steam bent into shape, and charred, creating a unique façade with rich dark appearance and low maintenance needs. Subtle imperfections in the timber lend a softer, warmer nature to the built form, in a precinct primarily dominated by glass and aluminium.
