The judging panel was wowed by the manner in which the Saffire resort responds to its bushland surroundings. 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.
Winners of all categories were announced on October 18 at Chapter House, Melbourne. Major figures from the design community were on hand to enjoy what has become the premier event in the timber design calendar.
