The best of the best joinery Innovative and bold use of materials came to the fore in this year’s Nelson Marlborough GoldenEdge Joinery and Design Awards, announced recently at a special function at Monaco. Entries were judged on how well they met the client brief in addition to design, workmanship, innovative use of materials, visual appeal and the complexity of the project.

Best Fitment


udges this year were Janet Cowper (interior designer for Q Design), Peter Cowper (Chair Centre for Fine Woodworking Trust Chief Operating Officer at NMIT), Justin Fletcher (Director at RedBox Architects) and Rachel Dodd (Director at Arthouse Architects). “We made sure the layout functioned well,” says Justin Fletcher. “Being an architect, I looked at the aesthetic side of the entries, for example material and colour choices, proportion and craftsmanship. “We rewarded innovative or bold uses of materials.” Hosted by the Nelson Marlborough Master Joiners Association, the awards were created by branch secretary Philip Thompson to give more confidence and greater exposure to joinery companies across the top of the South Island.
