Description
When London-based architect Hugh Strange was building his own home from an innovative solid spruce paneling system, he wanted doors, windows and fixed furniture that complemented and contrasted. The resulting marriage of European softwood with Central American hardwood went onto to win a prestigious TRADA wood award. The windows, doors and internal fit-out and furniture of responsibly sourced tropical hardwood (largely Cedro Macho) were felled by hurricane Felix in Nicaragua, Central America, fabricated in Simplemente Madera, arrived on site in a shipping container for simple site assembly.   Awards RIBA Award Winner 2011 Wood Award 2011 (Best Small Project) AIA Award Winner 2011 (Best Small Project)
