American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC), CID Awards 2018, Studio Bruno Guelaff

AHEC Award, hosted by CID Awards 2018, will recognise the outstanding use of American hardwoods in the region

CID Awards 2018 will once again host the American Hardwood Export Council Award (AHEC) which is back for its seventh iteration this year. The AHEC Award recognises a Middle East-based project that applies American-origin hardwoods in an ingenious way.

The shortlisted projects should creatively highlight the aesthetic quality of the material, as well as correspond organically with the surrounding interior.

The projects can be any commercial development that significantly features American hardwoods in its design and execution. Studio Bruno Guelaff won the AHEC Award in 2016 for its work on the Unique Properties’ office (pictured above) in Dubai.

Full nomination details for the award are available on the CID Awards website
