Design Concept

The old silo building is a heavy timber construction. The 3D wall section shows the design of the wall I have chosen to be used in the office, art gallery and pottery studio. The exterior wall material selected is wood planks as wanted to maintain the heritage look and pay respect to the old look of the building. Another reason to choose wood is that it is durable, sustainable, and efficient. Exterior sheathing is used instead of plywood to make the non-combustible building construction. Semi-rigid (mineral fibre wool) insulation is used above grade and is tripled. The roof material is asphalt shingles and was chosen because it is durable, eco-friendly, and safe. The same material was used on the old construction. Overall, the original appearance of the building is not changed except for the new addition, which is a vestibule.
