Solid and veneered timber products were used extensively throughout the project, from custom-made timber-framed glazed doors, to flooring, feature ceilings and joinery units.
Select grade, back-sawn, solid Australian Blackbuttt was used in the fabrication of custom-designed full-height sliding and pivot doors throughout the tenancy. Similarly, this same material was used for flooring – ‘Slimwood Solid Timber Flooring’, supplied by Boral; and, feature suspended ceilings in the reception and public areas. The feature ceiling was fabricated from 100mm wide x 19mm thick, select grade, back-sawn Blackbutt solid planks, fixed on edge to a suspended steel furring channel proprietary system. The bottom edge of the solid sections was articulated with a 3mm x 3mm grove, rebated into the material. The planks span across the ceiling area in a linear, gridded manner to provide a visual ceiling-line whilst maintaining an open area to the ceiling plenum above for the delivery of services such as air-conditioning registers, evacuation speakers and the like. Ceiling mounted services were fully integrated into the timber ceiling by way of custom-designed infill pieces, fabricated from the same material.
Balckbutt veneered panels were also used as decorative wall treatments and joinery finishes, where large, flat surfaces were required.
