freeform timber

Wood is one of the oldest building materials, but it has been off the radar of contemporary architecture for a long time. This is about to change. Driven by the need for sustainable construction a renaissance of timber is about to happen and it will be all but rectangular and dull.

Advancements in engineering and digital technology have made timber the perfect material for exciting freeform shapes – but building complex structures requires teamwork. Only when all the requirements for the design, engineering and fabrication can be cleverly matched will results meet expectations, deadlines and budgets. We believe that the best approach to achieve this is the close cooperation of experienced specialists. We offer our services as a team with well rehearsed interfaces and one common objective: the success of your project.
