This northern NSW site was carved from 4 pieces of solid beechwood while the building components were crafted by hand using manual woodworking machines.
The CNC machining process for this Presentation model was complex as the gantry height of the mahcine The CNC machining process for this Presentation model was complex as the gantry height of the machine would not allow us to carve the steep site in one go. It required 2 separate layers of timber to be carved and then joined back together post production. The smooth topography compliments the orthogonal Architectural design that appears to grow out from the topography.
The components for the house were made by hand, using traditional woodworking techniques and machinery. To aid CHROFI in their presentation, the roof was removable allowing for a clear view of the internal rooms and main structures.
TThe steep topography helps viewers appreciate the beautiful moments within the design as you move around the model to understand the Architectural spaces.
