WoodSolutions presents case studies of historical and heritage buildings, drawing attention to timber as one of the oldest and most durable building materials, with buildings still standing today that date back thousands of years.
From the careful refurbishment of heritage-listed buildings, to the painstaking restoration of centuries old structures and interiors, timber is the predominant material used in these projects, reflecting its historical status, longevity and timeless aesthetic.
