The Truly Reclaimed mahogany, supplied by The Architectural Forum, was salvaged from a gymnasium floor and reused at Hawksmoor Wood Wharf, London. 

Hawksmoor has just been consecutively awarded a maximum 3* rating from the Sustainable Restaurant Association. Using Truly Reclaimed materials sits with Hawksmoor’s ethos to be transparent about their sustainability progress and doing better for people and the planet. 


The reuse of 5.1m2 of Truly Reclaimed mahogany woodstrip at Hawksmoor Wood Wharf alone saved 250kgCO2e 

That is the energy equivalent of making of 25,000 standard plastic carrier bags
