2018: A Year of Award Winning Projects

November 23, 2018

This year, our commitment to contextual, innovative design has reached new heights. Being recognized for this work certainly means a lot to us. Thank you to those who helped us achieve our goals and set new standards for design excellence.

Here is a quick glance at the awards we so fortunately accepted this year.

Canadian Wood Council | Ontario Wood WORKS! Awards

November 2018

Ontario Wood WORKS! celebrated excellence in wood design with the presentation of its 18th annual Ontario Awards Program on November 20th in Vaughan, Ontario. At this event, Hobin Architecture was honoured to accept the “Commercial Wood Design” award for the showroom and design centre of OakWood Designers & Builders. Wood elements for this project, which was designed to achieve LEED Platinum, include cedar soffits, rough-hewn timber roof beams and brackets, reclaimed lumber, acoustic wall panels finished in natural oak and a series of large lattice screens. Members from our team were proud to celebrate this win with John Liptak, President of OakWood Ottawa. The project is featured in the 2018 Ontario Wood Works! Calendar.

In September, OakWood was named “Renovator of the Year” from the Ontario Home Builders’ Association. On behalf of our entire team, we want to congratulate them on a very successful year as well.

Ontario Home Builders’ Association | Awards of Distinction

September 2018

At the end of September, the Ontario Home Builders’ Association held their annual Awards of Distinction – a gala event part of a 3-day OHBA conference which took place in Ottawa this year. The “Schoolhouse Lofts” aka Yard & Station – which previously won a GOHBA Housing Design Award in 2017 – took home the trophy for “Mid-Rise Building 4-10 Storeys”.

It was also runner-up in the High or Mid-Rise Condo Suite category, for these provincial honours.

Another proud partnership with Ottawa developer Morley Hoppner, the school building at 12 Stirling offered a sense of place, history and a visual landmark to the otherwise unassuming street. Its demolition would have erased an important part of the history and identity of the street and Hintonburg community, and while the redeveloped building has a completely new use and layout, its schoolhouse character was successfully preserved as a legacy to the street and to the greater community.
