Arnold Laver Gold Award

The Wood Awards is the UK’s premier competition for excellence in architecture and product design.

It recognises, encourages and promotes outstanding design, craftsmanship and installation using wood.

The top award (or winner of winners) is the Arnold Laver Gold Award.

In 2017, it was awarded to Coastal House, Devon.

Tradoak provided wood for the project, designed by 6a architects.

Coastal House also received the Interiors Award.

Judges highlighted the oak beams making up the exposed primary structure.

They also praised the tapered oak verticals, used as supports throughout including primary drawing room columns, external veranda posts and the stair spindles.
