PROJECT: River View House
LOCATION: Tasmania
PRODUCTS USED: HW672 European Oak Castle

This 1980/1990s house, located with stunning river views in Tasmania, was in need of an update to reflect 21st century family life. Local firm MG Architecture.Interiors took on the challenge.

“To avoid complicated planning interruptions to an extremely tight construction programme the client brief was to provide a practical solution completely within the existing building envelope, developed with a visual emphasis on light timbers and white surfaces.”

Having previously used Havwoods’ products wtih good results and feedback fro clients, MG Architecture.Interiors turned to Havwoods Unfinished European Oak Castle engineered timber as the choice for the flooring thorughout the property, finished on site with a natural white oil.

“The colour and unfinished nature of the product, allowed us to finish with a natural white oil on site to achieve the aesthetic we were after whilst using low emission organic products.”

A beautifully streamlined, flexible, and cohesive space, with a focus on organic finishes and materials was the end result of this project.

Draw some inspiration from nature for your next project and choose a Havwoods rustic grade engineered timber product and create a truly unique talking point in your space. An unfinished engineered product enables you to have genuine and beautiful oak timber flooring, with stability you can rely on in an engineered product, together with the added bonus of being able to finish it with any shade, oil, or lacquer that you so desire.
