Four Avino Projects Shortlisted for Wood Awards 2023

Written by Fay Mircio

Four of Avino's projects have been shortlisted for the 2023 Wood Awards for their innovative use of timber in architecture. From small residential projects to commercial and education, we are proud to have been part of these amazing projects.

Made of Sand 

MNade of Sand by Studio Weave is an artist's retreat in Devon extended through the combination of timber and a large structural glass box to embrace the stunning surrounding landscape, whilst providing a serene place for the creative dwellers to realise their artistic visions.


St John’s College

New dining room, bar and café, by MCW Architects. An impressive biophilic oak structure converging into an automated skylight at its apex forms the college's new social dining and gathering space.

Lea Bridge Library Pavillion 

By Studio Weave. An entirely timber clad single storey extension to Grade II listed Lea Bridge Library breathes new life into the structure. As timber forms the primary element and body of the build, curved glass was implemented to follow the shape of the land to enhance the library's connection to the environment and resulting in a stunning symbiosis of timber and glass architecture. 

Black House Farm

By Robin Lee Architecture. Timber and glass links elegantly reconstruct a historic Hampshire farm at South Dowens National Park, embracing the heritage of the original builds while providing a contemporary touch.



The winners of the Wood Awards will be announced on 22nd November during an Evening Ceremony at Carpenter’s Hall.

We wish all those shortlisted the very best of luck!
