Room within a Room

Room within a Room

After months of collaborative work with Norbord and RIBA, we attended the awards event for the winners of RIBA Journal SterlingOSB’s Room within a Room competition.

David Connacher, Marketing Manager for Norbord, opened the event followed by a comment from RIBA’s Jan-Carlos Kucharek before the winners were announced.

Jan-Carlos then hosted a guest panel, featuring Ed Burgess (Burgess Architects), Clare Devine (Design Council) and Tilo Guenther (Nial McLaughlin Architects) who discussed the question: the evolution of housing – a retrospective and future outlook?

The night was a success with the audience eagerly participating and sparking debate in a Q&A session with the panel and there was the opportunity for networking at the end of the Q&A session.

It was a great atmosphere and was the evening was enjoyed by all!
