While renovating a house the idea of being inspired by traditional construction techniques and, in particular, how the old houses with exposed wooden beams were conceived, will certainly be able to confer that ancient charm, recalling the warm atmosphere of an intimate and familiar place.

Choosing to cover a ceiling with beams and tiles can guarantee high performance in terms of thermal insulation on top of being a valid solution from an aesthetic and architectural point of view.

The peculiarities of wood, intended as a highly insulating natural material, guarantee that a typical wooden beam ceiling can ensure a beneficial as well as unexpected thermal comfort, protecting your house from the harsh cold during the winter season and from excessive heat in the summer.

The owners decided to adopt wooden ceiling beams in order to create a structural layout characterized by a rustic style, but at the same time with a contemporary look.

The idea of a wooden ceiling exclusively on the area of the reception hall, has the effect of giving greater prestige to the living area, in contrast with the adjacent functional areas.

Observing the plan section of the wooden ceiling you can see that the beams themselves are more dense in correspondence with the floor above the entrance area, to ensure greater structural strength adjacent to the load-bearing walls.

Behind the sitting area there is the hallway while on the right stands the stairwell to access to the upper floor.

The view of the stairwell, for those who enterthe room from the main entrance of the house, is concealed by the creation of a custom-made corner wardrobe, visible more clearly in the next 3D drawing.

The wardrobe perfectly follows the curvilinear trend dictated by the false ceiling, creating coherence between the furniture and the architecture design.

The furniture consists of two classic style sofas, padded and covered in white removable fabric. On the walls of the lounge corner the owners decided to create a boiserie-like covering, developed up to about one meter in height, consisting of a white wood matchboard.

This way a beautiful natural frame was created, in chromatic assonance with the tones of the living room and the bleached floorboards.

The warping of the wooden ceiling joins the concavity of the false ceiling, creating an unexpected harmony of contrasts. The semicircular shape of the false ceiling, deliberately chosen to go well with the furniture, also perfectly integrates with the wooden beams.

The two types of materials, plasterboard and wood, dissimilar in composition and layout, are acyually perfect together, in a structural mix & match, very particular and with a great visual effect.
The electrical and air conditioning systems can be channeled inside the ceiling.

Plasterboard panels with high insulating power also guarantee an efficient thermal and acoustic insulation in addition to the thermal insulation peculiarity ensured by the ceiling with wooden beams.
