2012 Overall Winner - Paul Haar Architect - Candlebark School Library
The winners of the 2012 Australian Timber Design Awards have been announced! The top prize went to Paul Haar Architect for Candlebark School Library, a earth-covered library built into the side of a hill in Victoria's Macedon Ranges.

The judging panel was greatly impressed by the expert use of engineered timber within the Candlebark building structure. The design is remarkable also for its careful detailing and timber selection. And like many of this year's finalists, Candlebark makes excellent use of recycled and salvaged timbers.

Winners were announced on 27 September 2012 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney. Many well-known individuals from government, the timber industry, and the design community were on hand to enjoy what has become the premier event in the Australian timber-design calendar.

See the full list of winners.

Thank you to our judges, our sponsors and, most of all, the many members of the Australian timber design and architecture community who entered projects. The success of the 2012 Australian Timber Design Awards—Australasia's foremost timber design and architectural awards—is due to you.
