2014 Winners

The 2014 Australian Timber Design Award went to Bates Smart (in collaboration with Irwin Alsop Group) for Dandenong Mental Health Facility

This project comprises a series of linked pavilions surrounding internal glazed courtyards. The extensive use of natural timber internally in walls and ceilings and externally in cladding and exposed structures gives the facility a residential, suburban character. This is enhanced by carefully landscaped courtyards and external garden areas.
