The True Zero Carbon Challenge is a competition developed by Design Matters National. Entrants are required to design sustainable housing that adheres to a strict brief, with the aim of the home to pay back its carbon debt by 2050.
We were contacted by the team at design matters to create a distinctive and sustainable award using natural materials that reflected the outcomes of the challenge.
This award was created using recycled hardwood fence posts originally sourced from a farm in northern New South Wales. The posts are very weathered and have all their original characteristics including holes from the fence wire and nail holes throughout the blocks. The timber which was left very much in its natural state was perfect for this design brief as it reflects the essence of the challenge. No two blocks were the same which created a bespoke and memorable experience.
The text and logo were then etched onto the block, with an additional silver acrylic logo added to the front of the award, which created a focal piece.
We loved created this custom award! Contact us today to create your next custom project!
