While the collective house hunting consciousness has always yearned for exposed wooden beams and natural hardwood flooring, there has been an interesting design shift over the last decade that has seen an increase in the creative use of wood for both unique facade detailing or intricate, customized interiors.
The use of reclaimed and recycled wood to add a sustainable aspect to the design process has also potentially influenced the influx of timber architecture. Many construction companies are feeling the pressure to streamline the design process to include the use of ecologically sustainable materials.
Whether commercial or private, interior wooden spaces and timber architecture contributes to a laid back, natural feeling and is an easy way to bring attention back to craftsmanship.
