Kingerlee Scoop Gold Award

The Kingerlee team on the Waddesdon Archive project scooped two awards at the prestigious 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. Now in its ninth year, the Wood Awards is the most respected award for building and design in wood.

The unveiling of the winners and award ceremony took place at the Timber Expo Exhibition, Coventry, 27th September 2011.

The focal point of the new reading room at the archive centre was constructed from a furniture grade oak geogrid structure, unique in its design and construction.

From a select short list of projects nominated across the United Kingdom Kingerlee picked up both the Structural award and the overall Gold Award.
