Traditional timber framing techniques and styles can be traced back to the Roman Empire and beyond, but reached their height of popularity during the Medieval period.
Our clients for this project were referred to us by one of our suppliers’ Coach House Timbers. They were in the midst of designing a large residential project in the southern highlands and were looking for an internal architectural feature that could match the scale of this new home.
When our client decided to build a new family home on their sugar cane plantation in Mackay in northern Queensland they knew they needed something that would stand up to the elements. The building would need to be strong enough to withstand cyclones, termites the size of small cats and the monsoonal rains that hit each wet season.
This unique project was commissioned in 2019 by a family who wanted a building that reminded them and future generations of their local village in Italy. The family estate in Bungonia is covered with olive groves and a large home. The brief was to create a small, traditional styled chapel on the estate for all the family to enjoy.
