Once again Atkar Group are proud to have a large selection of our products showcased in a number of projects shortlisted for The Australian Institute of Architects 2019 Victorian Architecture Awards.
Concrete and steel may have dominated the architectural world over the past few decades but timber slats are increasingly gaining popularity as architects and designers material of choice.
Praised for its sustainability, quality and speedy construction time, timber offers a versatile and aesthetically pleasing alternative to other popular building products. Advances in technology mean that fire-rated, and acoustically-rated options are now available in a vast array of finishes that make timber a perfect choice for any project.
At Atkar we have seen the rise in popularity of timber slats firsthand, with orders for our timber slat product Au.diSlat increasing steadily over the past two years.
“Timber slats lend themselves to a return to minimal, material-driven spaces that champion natural textures and clean, organic lines, creating a continuous linear effect which is equally at home in contemporary or traditional spaces” says Ben Sangster, an architectural consultant at Atkar.
