A sustainable resource, wood perfectly captures the spirit of our age. Structurally robust, it is easy to work with and insulates brilliantly against both heat and cold and, as an organic material, generates a pleasant and healthy atmosphere in the spaces where it is used. It is all of these qualities that help to explain why it is timber houses in particular that are the trailblazers in the development of contemporary architecture and design and currently enjoy global - and growing - popularity. Wooden facades on futuristic buildings exude a welcome warmth while individual wooden elements lend the interiors an atmosphere of rustic chic, and existing stone or concrete features are enhanced through the sophisticated integration of wooden components.
