Pine Shading Louvres and Cladding Form a Modern Timber Extension

Pine shading louvres and cladding combine to form a sleek, contemporary timber extension nestled within the picturesque Belgian countryside.


PVL Architecten

A small stone-covered build with a classic gable roof found new life through a ThermoPine extension by PVL Architecten. This addition incorporated pine elements into both the exterior and interior of the house, seamlessly blending with the surrounding landscape and inviting the beauty of nature indoors. 

Pine louvres and cladding were chosen for their plethora of performance benefits. Firstly, pine is a sustainable and readily available material, making it more environmentally friendly than most of its counterparts. Pine louvres provide natural ventilation, allowing for airflow control and passive cooling, which enhances comfort and reduces energy consumption and costs. 

Additionally, pine cladding adds a timeless aesthetic appeal to the extension while providing insulation and weather resistance, ensuring durability and longevity of the structure. Furthermore, the use of timber promotes a warm and inviting atmosphere, contributing to the overall ambiance and well-being of the occupants. 

By placing pine louvres directly over timber framed windows and doors, PVL Architecten were able to achieve a cohesive aesthetic throughout the build, as this design choice ensures a harmonious integration of elements, creating a seamless visual narrative that enhances the overall appeal of the structure. 

Thermally treated pine, or ThermoPine, is a thermally enhanced timber that presents increased stability, durability and resistance to decay, making it an ideal choice for exterior applications. 

Moreover, ThermoPine offers improved dimensional stability, reducing the risk of warping, twisting, or cracking over time. Its enhanced resistance to moisture absorption ensures the overall longevity of the timber extensions.
