“Whatever good things we build, end up building us.” – Jim Rohn
Canadian Wood believes in sustainability. An idea that protects our present and gifts us a fruitful future. We stand by upcoming designers and thought leaders who are embracing the concept of ‘Green Buildings’. More and more organisations are putting their best put forward to reduce the carbon footprint in the environment and make sustainable choices for the world.
Bearing this positive thought in our minds, we have actively participated in projects that combine essential values of architecture like innovation, sustainability and unique designs.
Here are two of our best projects that exhibit these core values.
1. The Pallet Brewhouse and Kitchen
The Pallet Brewhouse and Kitchen, a new-age restaurant and micro-brewery in Bangalore, is inspired by an Italian restaurant. Ar. Ketan Jawdekar transformed a beautiful vision into this enchanting reality on a commute from Bangalore to the job site.
In order to cater to a younger crowd, he decided to go ahead with wall and panel cladding and give this space a rustic touch. Due to the strong design values, light whitish colour, rounded edges, and smooth finish of Spruce-pine-fir (SPF), it was the ultimate choice for this project. The grades used were a mix of J Grade and the lower grade #2 structural. Due to the species’ relatively low density, long fibres, and strong nail holding, the selected mix proved to be the perfect choice for this space.
2. CEPT University Workshop, Ahmedabad
CEPT University, Ahmedabad is known to lead by example, and by introducing engineered wood products in their Centre of Excellence Workshop, the university did just that. By using the opportunity to create an innovative space, the university used wood, an environment-friendly, sustainable and powerful building material, and created different woodwork.
The entire workshop is designed using superior quality wood products by Canadian Wood, especially utilising species like Douglas fir, Western hemlock, and Yellow cedar.
Inspiring designs, conscious environmental decisions, and an aim to conserve the environment allows you to open your mind, design, innovate and inspire. All we have to do is open our minds and work towards the betterment of the environment.
If you find the above mentioned projects interesting, then you can also take a look at the other projects in which Canadian wood species are used. https://www.canadianwood.in/inspiration-gallery/
FII India, funded by the government of British Columbia (B.C.), Canada represents Canadian Wood in India for all its five species viz.
