Special & Award Winning Projects

Since 2003, Oakwrights Bath has worked on some very exciting projects.

Bespoke Joinery at its Best

Oakwrights Bath are proud to have won our own awards and delivered joinery to award winning projects.

Due to the bespoke nature of our business, all our joinery is custom made to meet your exact requirements and that makes every single project special.

Throughout our website, you will see examples of joinery items that we produce on a regular basis.

On this page, you will see details of truly unique, one-off projects that Oakwrights Bath has been asked to take on.  These have given our very qualified team an opportunity to showcase all their craftsmanship and skills.

The Old Court House


Oakwrights Bath provided joinery for the winner of the RIBA Conservation Award 2018.

About the project

Harrison Brookes Architects were given the task of planning and overseeing the restoration work of The Old Court House, a 16th Century Grade II listed building. The owner bought the large farm estate near Worcester, in 2011 and at that time, the building had been left derelict for decades and was on the verge of collapse.

Initially, Oakwrights Bath were asked to manufacture the windows and doors for the original building and when Peter first visited the site, what was left of the building was shrouded in scaffolding.  As the project progressed, we were also asked to produce joinery for the new build extension and to replicate panelling found in the original building.

The Old Court House has won numerous awards including the RIBA Conservation Award 2018 and the RIBA West Midlands Award 2018.

British Woodworking Federation Award Winners


In 2013, Oakwrights Bath won the BWF award for Technical Excellence and Innovation.

About the project

We were asked to assist with the transformation of a building in central London into a spiritual centre for the Self-Realization Fellowship. The main technical challenge came from turning the vision of the architect and the Fellowship into a joinery reality. The vision was to undertake a refurbishment that would preserve the heritage of the building while enhancing the whole building decoratively. This involved transforming windows, doors and other internal features, and ensuring the modern 1970s extension linked to and echoed the original Victorian part of the building.

At the time, Peter said:

“We enjoyed this project because it allowed us to use every skillset we have. The BWF award is a great honour and testament to the whole team at Oakwrights. We worked under huge time pressure and it needed the combined skills of everyone to mix the modern and traditional practices required by this job. We have learned a great deal throughout the project, including how to quickly interpret what the client wants and how best to liaise very closely with all parties, tying in with other trades.”

Iain McIlwee, Chief Executive of the BWF, commented:

“This prestigious project used modern methods, products and materials to achieve a traditional-looking result, very fine workmanship and excellent standard of finish. The judges were very impressed with the joinery quality, innovation and fantastic project management skills shown by Oakwrights.”

Tetbury Barn Conversion


This project consisted of converting a barn and outbuildings into living accommodation.

About the project

The barn and outbuildings were within the grounds of an existing farm and had been used as storage for many years. As you can see from the “before” photos, this project included many challenges, including the weather!

We manufactured external joinery including screens, windows and doors, all in solid European Oak with a clear, oiled finish. This gave us a chance to show off many of our different strengths as the screens were extremely large and curved, incorporating window sashes into a door and gunstock stiles on the doors to increase the glazing area to name but a few.

Internally we produced stairs, fitted furniture and internal ledged and braced doors. The clear finish applied to all of the Oak joinery helps to give this barn conversion a warm feel.
