A feature in The Age by property editor Phillip Hopkins explores the innovations made by Melbourne architecture practice H20 in designing with and constructing in timber.
Around a decade ago, H20 Director Tim Hurgburgh designed a timber-clad design for RMIT’s textiles building. This “hugely influential” building led to a re-awakning to the physical and aesthetic virtues of the material, leading to the use of timber in commercial buildings to grow dramatically in the past ten years.
H20 alone have gone on to feature timber into major designs for university clients, sporting stadiums and performing arts centres.
