Wood Awards: Winner of Commercial & Leisure Award 2019

Striking the right note and balance between 18th Century heritage and 21st Century modern architecture is never easy, but TTF member, Swift Crafted Ltd won Commercial & Leisure 2019 at the Wood Awards for this design. The use of American black walnut transformed the Royal Opera House and reimagines the world-renowned home of ballet and opera.

 

The subtle timber elements inlaid in the stone floor extend a warm invitation to guests. Inside the Linbury Theatre foyer, the exquisite book matched veneer surfaces are complemented by linear grids of timber batons and solid wood parquet. The Linbury Theatre is entirely clad in black walnut, inspired by the rich cherry cladding in the main 1858 Opera House auditorium. Integrated within the timber are the lights, acoustic insulation and sound equipment, creating an elegant seamless flow.
