lighter, more sustainable and smarter designs

Since a construction method is not easy to see in project photos, here a brief explanation about the realization of designs and more specifically about wood and CLT. Over the past years we have always been looking for smart (and therefore time, material and cost-saving) construction methods to realize our designs. A design is one, but getting it cleverly constructed and realized is an equal second step.

From the start of our office we have a passion for this, as seen in our text on the ‘detail’. We have realized several designs by applying prefabricated wooden elements (cross laminated timber known as CLT) and working with timber frame construction for the floors and walls of a building. By thinking in terms of construction options, we realize lighter, more sustainable and smarter designs. This beyond the standard lines thinking we also do with other materials and construction methods.
