category that recognises wood’s value in producing low-
environmental impact designs. The “Exterior Structure

Technology Award” have been further refined and criteria
clarified.

The projects displayed in this booklet highlight how the
capability and skills of those individuals and companies who
work in wood are taking the use of this renewable construction
material to new levels in New Zealand. The degree of
innovation in wood-based design continues to advance
at an accelerating pace not only meeting the demands of
individual customers but also the urgent needs of a warming
planet looking to reduce the massive environmental impact
of conventional construction materials and methods.                Brian Stanley

WINNER: Tuarangi-Outaspace
Tamaki Makaurau Office Architecture t/a
TOA Architects

David Carradine: This was an excellent example
of residential architecture where timber was used
in ways that exploited the possibilities of what can                            Blueskin Bay
be done with it. CLT provided a means for creating                              Retreat
interesting angles and a variety of spaces resulting                            Mason
in a series of well executed places throughout the                              and Wales
house. The interior and exterior provide intriguing                             Architects
perspectives that could only be achieved using
the carefully chosen palette of timber materials.
Excellent integration of design and the ability to
fabricate using timber products.

Tim Melville: The fractured forms of Tuarangi
combine to make a striking home nestled firmly
in its neighbourhood context. CLT has been used
extensively and to great effect for the formation of
a box beam that allows the bedroom wing to bridge
over and cantilever off the concrete structure
below, while raking CLT walls allow the first floor to
twist and create the striking forms viewed from the
street. The iron vitriol coating to the Abodo Tundra                            Hidden Hills
Douglas Fir enhances the natural qualities of the                               House
timber cladding, while exposed CLT combines with                                Warren and
thermally treated Abodo elements to define the                                  Mahoney
thoughtful, warm interior spaces.

HIGHLY COMMENDED: Arvida Living
Well Park Lane
Jasmax

David Carradine: Based on a multi-faceted
approach to “well-being” the designers of Arvida
created a retirement living complex that integrates
timber into a building that resounds with a sense
of belonging and community.           People and
environmental impacts are key to the design and
timber elements and innovative building systems                                 The Grounds
provide opportunities for interaction while seeking                             Peddle Thorp
to reduce the carbon footprint as much as possible.

Tim Melville: The design of the Arvida village
endeavours to instil a sense of community among
residents through the careful planning of shared
spaces and connections to the outdoors. This
is further enhanced through the application
of biophilic design principles which promote
exposure to natural materials such as the Acoya
modified timber products and exposed CLT panels
that feature in the building interior. A high level of
environmental sustainability has been achieved
through sequestering a significant amount of CO2
within the mass timber structure, and a highly

apparent. The floating CLT floor was a powerful reminder
of what timber is capable of and how its lightness can be
capitalised on.

WINNER: St. Patricks Church
WSP Opus
David Carradine: Timber was used to create a
magnificent space reminiscent of churches from
centuries past but with an added contemporary
aspect that reminds occupants that this is a modern
material able to express a variety of emotive effects.
The folded timber roof was gracefully perched on
a light timber 3-D roof and column support system
which resulted in an upward and uplifting feel to
the sacred space. The exterior was also detailed
in timber such that it would age and weather in a
subtle response to the elements.

Tim Melville: The sensitive contemporary design          Tennent Brown
of the new St Patricks Church references traditional
church architecture and helps preserve the memory
of the building that it has replaced. The warm tones
of the timber cladding contrasts with the precast
concrete base walls which anchor the building,
while the vertical slot windows flood the interior
spaces with natural light. The church interior
features vaulted timber ceilings supported on an
exposed laminated timber structure, and houses the
repurposed timber altar and pews.

HIGHLY COMMENDED: Star Mountain

Kirk Roberts Consulting
David Carradine: The scale, complexity and
manufacturing ingenuity all came together for a
very impressive structure that flowed and reflected
a powerful icon of the surrounding environment
and culture. A high degree of expertise was required     Waihinga Martinborough Com. Centre
to create a set of curved structural elements that       Holmes Consulting
would be delivered and assembled within tight
tolerances and in a remote location. The project is
uniquely timber in that it speaks to the surroundings
but also made the fabrication and assembly feasible
overseas.

Tim Melville: The design of the Star Mountain
Plaza Convention Centre roof structure features
a complex 29 metre clear span glulam arch portal
frame. The curvaceous form swoops and dives
to create dramatic spaces beneath, and in doing
so demonstrates the flexibility of engineered
timber. The design of the complex structure
and its components was developed through full
BIM modelling and coordination which allowed
for smooth, accurate manufacture and efficient
assembly on the remote site.

WINNER: National Library Auditorium,
Wellington
Warren and Mahoney
David Carradine: Acoustic performance was achieved
using texture and the unique properties of wood
which created a fascinating space in which to observe
performances and presentations. The resulting space
effectively articulates a movement from dark to light
and has a very tactile presence created through the
carefully placed wooden components. The warmth
of wood makes the auditorium very inviting and
evokes complexity using simple elements.

Andrea Stocchero: Venustas and utilitas, beauty and
function. Taiwhanga Kauhau has been designed to be
an ‘instrument for the voice’ referencing the original
building refurbishment concept of Te Kore – ‘The
Journey from Darkness to Enlightenment’. The result
is an exquisite sound box that vibrantly plays with
light and shadows as it plays with sound and silence.
Sustainably harvested wind-felled Southland beech
wood is defining the iconic identity of this interior
space with its embracing warm colour tones and
acoustic properties. Taiwhanga Kauhau will surely
become a community landmark for the sharing and
dissemination of knowledge, arts and culture.

                                                                   Harrison Grierson

Box Build Ltd
David Carradine: Different coatings and treatment
of timber products are used to reflect the different
uses of rooms throughout this house and provide
examples of the variety of finishes available for wood.
These variations on the timber theme allow light to
bounce and create contrasts by exemplifying the
range of surfaces and textures created.

Andrea Stocchero: Delving into the details of Lara
Lane’s interior design allows for charming surprises:
colours deceive, textures reveal. Junction lines
orientate and blend rather than divide. The result is
a sleek, modern design that goes beyond essentiality.
Nothing is more, nothing is less, everything has
purpose. Rich caramel tones converse with shades of
black softened by a variety of textures. Thoughtfully
selected and treated solid and engineered wood
products are combined to complement the clean
architectural lines. Volume makes wood the discreet
signature material defining the elegant interior design
and atmosphere of this residence.

Tim Melville: The Saltwater Creek bridge is a great
example of beauty in simplicity. Its low profile linear
design is based on the traditional German Trog
Brücke (trough bridge) which have the deck spanning
between two structural beams rather than sitting
on top. The sleek form with its angular timber slats
allude to the waka hull, and evokes a real sense of
movement. The bridge was prefabricated offsite and
craned into place on the concrete substructure which
helped minimise the impact on the river ecology.

      JUDGES’ COMMENTS

WINNER: Te Whare Wānanga o Nga Mahi
Auaha
Adam Clark, Victoria University of
Wellington
Tim Melville: The design of Te Whare Wānanga
o Nga Mahi Auaha is derived from the narrative
of Wellington’s taniwha, Whātaitai, whose spirit
transformed into the bird Te Keo. The sweeping
structural timber elements unite the various parts of
the taniwha which themselves contain the schools
of dance, architecture, music and theatre. Strong
conceptual thinking has been developed into
an adventurous, well considered building which
explores the connection between land, sea and sky.

David Carradine: This project brought together
an impressive array of functions within a single
building that effectively tied together the site, Maori
culture and a flow of people through the building.
Curves and intriguing forms were created using
timber to develop interesting interior and exterior
experiences for visitors and users of the building.
The ambiguity between inside and outside was
enhanced by cladding and material choices.

       JUDGES’ COMMENT

HIGHLY COMMENDED: The Vakas of the
Great Fleet
Dorien Viliamu, University of Auckland
Andy van Houtte: A cultural history story runs
within these concepts and canoe inspired forms.
Well-presented graphics, exploded views and details
shows thought into construction. The synergies with
culture, local people and the Pacific lifestyle are
clear to see.

Andrea Stocchero: The project integrates different
buildings and landscape features designed around
the strong leitmotiv of modern reinterpretation of
the local Polynesian culture and its relationship
with the natural environment. The design blends
together elements of the traditional vaka (canoe)
and fare (house). As a result, forms, spaces and
volumes are open to nature and lightness, sensitively
connecting and blending with the natural context.
Following the tradition of Rarotongan vaka and fare
construction, wood is used as building material and
the design is honestly exposing the carpentry details
elevating to beauty the union between architecture,
craftmanship and natural materials.

WINNER: Christchurch Symphony
Orchestra
Warren and Mahoney
Andy van Houtte: What makes the Ron Ball Studio
unique is the rich warmth of the Southland Beech
coupled with the acoustic wall detailing, making the
studio a visual match to its intended purpose. Warren
and Mahoney has created a space that’s enticing and
comfortable, which people will be reluctant to leave.

Andrea Stocchero: The rich and warm colour of
New Zealand Southland beech envelopes this shrine
to music in an intimate embrace that vibrates with
the symphonic harmony of strings, woodwinds, brass
and percussions. Southland beech was selected as
material of choice “for its rich honey colouration
and warm dry acoustic”. The use of both solid timber
and veneer panels is an exemplar that showcases
the available products from a sustainably-sourced,
New Zealand grown alternative species. The result
is a design that merges acoustic engineering and
architecture for the pleasure of senses.

HIGHLY COMMENDED: Christchurch
Town Hall
Timbers of NZ
Andy van Houtte: It is the story behind the rimu floor
where Mark McKenzie has provided the link to the
history of the James Hay Theatre. Both the recovered
Westland Rimu and Town Hall are icons of New
Zealand’s built heritage, both have suffered natural
disasters and both will live on to create further history
for New Zealand.

Andrea Stocchero: The rimu (Dacrydium
cupressinum) timber flooring is a like for like
replacement of the original James Hay Theatre
flooring damaged by the 2011 Christchurch

Andy van Houtte: Julie Villard has proven that
sustainability is achievable with this NZ Green Building
Council 9 star, Homestar, boat shed inspired home.
The main structure is untreated CLT and a New
Zealand first using modern wood fibre insulation.
Clever design has meant that this building meets
New Zealand’s Building code for durability, along
with natural vapour permeability and high thermal
performance.                                                       Hawera Flat Passiv Haus

Andrea Stocchero: The Boat Shed home in Lyttelton
shows how timber and holistic sustainable design
practices can deliver low environmental impact
buildings for a sustainable future. Importantly, this
project is pioneering the use of wood fibre insulation
(WFI) in New Zealand. Such performing and versatile
natural insulation product has been applied to
the exterior of the CLT structure for an optimised
hygrothermal (heat and moisture flows) performance.
The untreated CLT panels left exposed in the interior
define the character of the house, and they are a
visual statement of the project’s success in delivering
a sustainable and healthy building for the pleasure of
both humans and the natural environment.

of CO2 in its structure alone. The Jasmax design of
the retirement project, focussed on biophilic design,
wellness focused architecture, high energy efficiency
and sustainable construction methodologies creating
a comprehensively considered sustainability approach
to the build.

Andrea Stocchero: Sustainable development entails,
among other requirements, actions towards climate
change mitigation and people’s wellbeing. Arvida
Living Well Park Lane embraced both challenges
by using and exposing timber on a large-scale. The
climate benefit of storing carbon in wood is paired
with wood products’ low embodied-energy (and
carbon emission), which also provide a carbon
substitution effect compared to alternative materials.
The higher building envelope’s insulation and air-
tightness is coupled with mechanical ventilation with
heat recovery simultaneously reducing operational
carbon emissions and improving people’s comfort
and wellbeing. Wellbeing is also enhanced by biophilic
and wellness-focused design strategies, including the
exposure of wood that provides a deeper sense of
connection with nature.

Andy van Houtte: Alister Cattanach has, once again,
taken a hands-on approach to resolving a unique
architectural design. Using screw laminated spotted
gum to form a hybrid gridshell in unison with the steel
beams to form the topographic curves of the roof
structure. Extra points for getting amongst it.

Andrea Stocchero: Innovation happens when
challenges are embraced with creative wilfulness.
Delivering the complex parametric design of Lindis
Lodge roof structure required the invention of the
screw laminated hardwood lamella and the structural
design and solution of an ‘hybrid gridshell’ where all
components work together as parts of a single entity.
A high-level of collaboration, knowledge blending,
and ingenuity together have achieved efficient and
effective structural solutions perfectly integrated with
the breath-taking architecture and landscape.

HIGHLY COMMENDED: Waihinga

Holmes Consulting
Andy van Houtte: The Holmes engineered glulam
truss roof is impressive in both size and geometrical
design. The roof structure is further expressed by the
supporting steel columns and connection detailing.
The wood theme continues with the LVL purlins
supporting a plywood diaphragm and the timber
batten cladding creates a distinctive and unifying
façade.

Andrea Stocchero: Martinborough Community
Centre is an exemplar for combining heritage and
contemporary architecture blending together in a
harmonious way. The indoor environment is brought
to life by the roof’s striking timber structure. The
impressive long spans and structural geometries
create an amusing and welcoming space for the
local community and visitors. The glulam roof
trusses design resembles the branching of trees and
the exposed plywood diaphragm as a canopy nod
to biophilic design offering visitors opportunity for
contemplation.

WINNER: Smith House
POTIUS Building Systems Ltd
David Carradine: A simple and effective prefabricated
building system was used as an innovative solution for
a complex roof design that was originally to be done
in concrete. By making the most of the properties of
the timber-based components, designers were able
to develop a system that met the needs of the building
and created a more efficient system which enclosed
the building in a matter of days. The well-explained
processes used highlighted the relationships between
design, manufacture and installation that are all
critical for timber buildings of the future.                       Boat Shed, Lyttelton

Tim Melville: Developed from Balsa wood veneer,
this remarkable new organic material has the
potential to be used in a variety of applications
including microfluidics (manipulating and controlling
fluids), photonics (light generation), optical sensors,
smart packaging, lighting, energy storage and
wearable devices. It could conceivably replace
petroleum-based plastics in these applications
thereby reducing carbon emissions and dependence
on non-degradable polymers. The next step in
the development of this exciting technology is the
exploration of NZ grown wood species such as pine
and eucalyptus.

innovative hidden connections, effective construction
sequencing and a very high dimensional tolerance
resulting in a roof structure that appears to just hang
in the air.

Andrea Stocchero: Design for Manufacture
and Assembly (DfMA) supported by the strong
collaboration and communication across the design
manufacturing and assembling phases allow the
high level of accuracy for the prefabricated glulam
elements of the of the roof grid system to be achieved.
Very tight tolerances of 0.1% and the elegant CNC
manufactured slot-in hidden connection provided
an excellent aesthetic for the final roof. Relevant is
also the design for durability strategy which couples
chemically treated timber with thoughtful design
detailing for weathering protection. The result is
an innovative, wise and holistically beautiful design
which blends aesthetic with function.
