Frank Lloyd Wright’s appreciation of mankind’s oldest building material is still shared by most architects, interior designers, owner-occupiers and tenants. Wood is organic, it is regarded as warm, as making human surroundings cosy. In addition, it can compete with any hi-tech material: wood has an extraordinarily good weight-to-strength ratio, has outstanding acoustic and insulation properties, and when properly deployed and looked after, it is also durable. Particularly in recent years, wood’s climate-friendly and energy-saving effects have helped bring about a renaissance: timber buildings have always achieved low-energy standards, they are climate-neutral to erect, and environmentally friendly to demolish. Those who recognize and exploit the natural qualities of wood have a wonderfully versatile material which can be brought to life in the hands of a creative designer and builder.
