The project designed by four architecture graduates at FCBStudios incorporates innovative timber cladding materials and preservation methods including a Japanese technique called Shou Sugi Ban.

The awards represent the best of British Design and Craftsmanship in Wood and aims to recognise, encourage and promote outstanding design, craftsmanship and installation using wood. All of the shortlisted projects will be showcased at 100% Design in September at London Olympia, and the winners will be revealed by host Tom Dyckhoff at the ceremony at Carpenters’ Hall on 10th November 2015.
