ARCHTECH

Group Project that focused on developing a 1:10 detailed physical model of a house section, with both compliant and non-compliant factors using the building code.

For this model, our intention was to expose the structure of the building and integrate these ideas with the compliant code of 3604 (timber construction). This was achieved by using Glulam beams as the main aesthetic appeal and structural element of the building where they serve their purpose of holding the floors up without being hidden from sight like all compliant building structures. The building is designed to be on a high wind zone and utilises a lateral bracing system for the glazing.
