The Axe&D construction system, developed over 30 years ago by my father when he built up the family joinery and carpentry business, is based on the post-and-beam technique. This consists of assembling one vertical and one horizontal timber structure to form the "skeleton" of the building, allowing very large openings on the outside and vast spaces without any load-bearing walls. This construction technique offers many advantages:
•A unique, contemporary “architecture of light”
•Optimum sunlight all year round
•A very cosy home, giving the impression of indoor/outdoor living
•A wide range of modular spaces and volumes.
A great deal of technical detail goes into the structure and exterior joinery, in particular. Our guiding principle is to create buildings that are minimalist, beautiful, pure and in perfect harmony with their ever-changing environment. This philosophy is reflected in our finishes and the materials we use.
