Wood in construction and architecture

Wood’s qualities probably make it the most outstanding material for construction. As a renewable building resource, wood is environmentally friendly and consumes the least amount of energy during manufacture.

Although new materials have emerged over time, wood still remains one of those most used today. In both domestic residences and public spaces or buildings, the material is noted for qualities such as durability and hardness, in addition to its nobility and innate elegance.

The meticulous care taken in processing natural wood is replicated in the forests where it is planted. Sustainable extraction and subsequent careful processing of the raw material create a top quality product.

The key features of each type of wood are the colour, scent, texture/grain and veining. The latter two are those that make each piece of wood unique, giving the product a beautiful finish and surface in terms of both touch and appearance.

In addition, wood has excellent sound absorption. Stopping sound waves therefore provides greater acoustic comfort. In the same way, wood also acts as a thermal insulator, which not only gives the material a pleasant touch but reduces energy consumption.
