Balliol Pavilion wins the RIBA South Award 2022!

Xylotek took on responsibility for installation planning, design and detailing on an award-winning project!

Congratulations to Niall McLaughlin Architects for the RIBA South Project Architect of the Year Award 2022 for the pavilion at Balliol College, Oxford.

Xylotek took on responsibility for installation planning and design, and also for detailing the interfaces between the timber structure and the waterproof enclosure. We planned, sequenced and delivered the hand-powered installation in order to carefully control the finish of the structure. Great teamwork by all!

Thanks to: BAM Construct UK, RIBA, Smith and Wallwork Engineers. Photos: ©️Nick Kane 2021.
