Sustainable French Timber Houses: L'affaire de Wood

Front Cover
Images Publishing, 2006 - Architecture - 156 pages
Giving this versatile material new respect, the timeless and enduring qualities of wood are brought into focus through this full-colour, illustrated volume. Sutainable French Timber Houses provides a deep insight into the amazing properties of this much misunderstood material. Of all building materials, wood is not only the most renewable, but also contributes to preserving the environment; the shorter construction time for timber houses, the freedom associated with designing with wood and its inherent organic qualities also make it an ideal choice for architects. From whimsical long cabin-like structures to sleek 21st-century dwellings with contemporary linear styles, this book explores the cosy ambience of building with wood in extensive and engrossing detail.
