A CONTEMPORARY OAK HOME

THE ADVANTAGES OF A TIMBER FRAME WHEN DESIGNING A MODERN OR CONTEMPORARY OAK HOME

 

Today more and more architects, engineers and designers are recognising both the structural qualities of oak and other timbers and their enhancing aesthetic qualities. This has led to an imaginative and innovative use of heavy timbers to enhance both residential and commercial structures. While many of our buildings are based on traditional oak designs we have also created a number of contemporary timber frame homes

An Oak frame itself is geometric in proportion and presence, and as such is highly successful when incorporated into contemporary homes. As our contemporary homes are based on grids and intersecting planes, this evolves naturally with our architectural designers being able to optimise the spaces within, to create exciting and refreshing room plan layouts. Please download floorplans for one of our contemporary homes here.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A TIMBER FRAME CONTEMPORARY BUILDING

 

Open plan living is synonymous with contemporary homes and designing a modern home with an oak frame will achieve this instantly. Our contemporary homes provide a greater potential for vistas through the building, with little or no corridors and key features for contemporary living such as double height spaces, mezzanine decks, galleries and vaulted ceilings. 

 

A MODERN OAK FRAME 

 

Modern timber frame designs typically feature a stripped back oak frame, which is then externally encapsulated and clad in modern materials such as crisp render, cedar boarding, zinc/aluminium profile sheeting and glass. We are being asked more and more to complete our homes to even higher levels of insulation for increased efficiency, read our recent blog about the latest Oak Frame Passive House project we undertook.
