Roscommon House Wins Australian Timber Design Award - 2018

Featuring Vulcan timber throughout, the Roscommon House has won a 2018 Australian Timber Design Award - in the Interior Fitout category.

Celebrating the best in timber design, the 2018 Australian Timber Design Award winners include the Roscommon House, in the Interior Fitout - Residential Class 1 category.

Masterfully designed by Neil Cownie Architects, the Roscommon House appears as a concrete building from the outside, however the interiors are remarkably warm (and visually stunning) - a result achieved through the extensive use of timber.

This project is a demonstration of how versatile timber is in the different forms it has been used. Abodo's Vulcan timber in Walnut was selected for its beautiful, consistent colour tones.

The Roscommon House is designed and built to last many generations, and as such needed conviction in the material selection, both from a structural and moral standpoint.

The selection of long-lasting, low maintenance materials contributes thermal mass, maintaining stable internal temperatures regardless of the season.
