The Importance of Architectural Joinery

Architectural joinery is generally classed as all those timber elements that are integral to the fabric of the building, such as architraves, doors, skirting and picture rails. It often defines the edges of elements of space and the junctions between elements. Very different feels can be achieved depending on how the architectural joinery contrasts or blends in with the surrounding elements.

Often we are working in historic buildings in central London where we may be transitioning between a protected Listed interior and a more modern addition to the project. In this situation it is important to look at how elements such as skirting change through the project to become more contemporary and how this provides a legibility to the design.

Where we have less restrictions we can provide a classic contemporary feel with the modern flexibility of modern hardware such as sliding doors.
