2012 Overall Winner :: Paul Haar Architect :: Candlebark School Library
2012 Overall Winner :: Paul Haar Architect :: Candlebark School Library
The 2012 Australian Timber Design Award 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 broad-span timber roof of the library supports a 500-600 mm layer of earth--a significant engineering challenge--and is made of LVL billets and massive exposed portal frames. 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 in late 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.

Thank you to everyone who entered the Awards. This has been our most successful year to date, with more entries received than ever before and a great deal of public interest. The success of the 2012 Australian Timber Design Awards--Australasia's foremost timber design and architectural awards--is due to you.
