BlackLAB architects together with Moses Structural Engineers have won the Commercial Wood Award at Ontario Wood WORKS! this week for the booth design at IDS17 in Toronto (Interior Design Show) for Ontario Wood. It was a pleasure working with blackLAB architects on this project and we are honoured to have won this award.
The show took place between January 19-22 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

At the same time as a trend towards sustainability is bringing increased focus on the age-old building medium of wood, recent changes to the Ontario Building Code have eased some restrictions on wood frame construction. To celebrate the growing importance of wood in modern city building, the Canadian Wood Council held their 17th annual Wood WORKS! Awards yesterday evening at the Delta Toronto, bringing together architects, engineers, developers and other construction industry professionals working with wood design and construction, as well as advocacy groups promoting the benefits of building and designing with wood.
12 awards were presented at the industry-led event, with the majority—ten awards—going to projects, and the remaining two handed out to individuals for their contributions to the advancement of wood construction in the building industry.
