Timber Indoor-Outdoor Living

Why use Interior and Exterior Timber Cladding?

Timber itself, no matter in which form, is a small carbon footprint material which requires much less consumption of fossil fuels for production compared to most other building materials.  

From an energy standpoint, the natural thermal insulation properties of timber can be utilised to keep builds warm in the winter and cool in the summer, reducing the overall carbon footprint even further. 

And last, but certainly not least, interior and exterior timber cladding can create striking, timeless designs and enhance a build’s aesthetic in a variety of ways.

Timber Clad Walls and Ceilings


Using timber on both the façade and interior cladding achieves a seamless aesthetic flow throughout the home. Especially when combined with other natural elements such as stone, timber can create an effortless biophilic design in any environment. 

Timber clad walls and ceilings create an organic narrative for the interior materiality, while allowing statement pieces such as furniture elements to stand out against the neutral, serene timber backgrounds. 

In architectural accents such as oversized window openings, timber ceilings can frame the views surrounding the structure, as well as provide the required insulation and protection to the window elements.

Timber Shutters


Merging interior and exterior timber cladding with the profile of external wooden shutters  offers a cohesive and tactile design.

Besides the aesthetics, large timber shutter facades can keep builds cool in the summer and accumulate heat in winter, providing a naturally built in defence to the entire structure.
