Exposed Framing (An Architect’s Guide)

Architects refer to the underlying structure of a home as the bones. This structural frame, so fundamental to architecture, is often concealed behind finishes, layers of drywall, wood, tile and cabinetry. Exposing it to view and incorporating it into living spaces provides a number of interesting opportunities and unique visual effects. It’s not, however, trivial to do so.

In this video I discuss the implications + effects of the decision to expose the bones of a structure to plain view.

    I have always loved exposed structural framing -especially wood members. I think this "true" image of architecture will be making a strong come back in the next decade with the new advancements in stronger wood members and using wood in more extensively fire rated buildings per code. As the technology catches up, I think you'll see a lot more interest in archiecture like this. Which excites me. Great video. Keep them coming. love the movement.

    Hi… this is a bit much to ask but in the future can you include citations for the projects you show in your videos? No particular citation format but a link or the name of the project and its architect would be greatly appreciated.
