2011 Winners

The 2011 Australian Timber Design Award went to Circa Morris-Nunn Walker for Saffire a lavish 20 suite resort overlooking Great Oyster Bay, Tasmania. 

The judging panel was wowed above all by the manner in which the Saffire resort responds to its bushland surroundings. The judges noted how the organic curves of the resort roofs rise gradually above the bush like small hills, reminiscent of the gentle peaks of the nearby Hazard Ranges. These complex curves could not have been achieved without the design flexibility of pre-fabricated structural timber – a fact that ultimately gave Saffire the edge over other timber-rich finalists.
