Dutch Houtdag and National Timber Construction Award 2021
On November 24, the DERIX-group was present at the Dutch "Houtdag" in Musis Arnhem. The theme of this wood day was the future of wood construction. In several large and small presentations, innovative ideas and knowledge about designing and building with wood were shared with the audience. Guest speakers were Shajay Booshan of Zaha Hadid Architects from London and Robert Schmitz of White Arkitekter from Stockholm.
The day also saw the presentation of the Dutch National Award for Timber Construction ("Nationale Houtbouwprijs"). The Triodos Bank in Driebergen, for which Derix supplied and assembled the timber structure, was chosen as the best timber building in the Netherlands! This office of RAU Architects is praised by the jury for its exceptional construction and design and its very own identity. The public is also enthusiastic about Triodos Bank: the building not only won the overall Wood Construction Award, but also the Public Award.
