McMorran and Gatehouse Architects win 2009 Wood Award

  • 1 Comment

[FIRST LOOK] McMorran and Gatehouse Architects’ Northumbrian green oak bridge today won the prize for the Best Use of British Timber at the 2009 Wood Awards

In collaboration with furniture designer Jeremy Cosmo Davies and engineers Price Myers, McMorran and Gatehouse Architects designed a 10m-long oak bridge in a landscaped garden, inspired by boat building skills.

The oak used to make the bridge was sourced from within the UK, principally from 19th Century plantations in Herefordshire.

John Wilkie, a member of the judging panel and tutor at the Building Crafts College, believes the bridge to be a, ‘tour de force’ of timber construction.

A model of the bridge featured in this year’s Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

  • First class, what a splendid job, what character. I would have commissioned this myself if I had land with a stream.
