We use hard, heavy wood, all of Brazilian origin.

Species of wood used for our kits :

  • 80% Angelim Pedra and Grapia species

All timber is extracted from the Amazon forest with respect for the ecosystem and without damaging the fauna and flora.

Origin of our wood

The timber used for our kits all comes from Brazil.

All our timber is certified and authorized by the IBAMA (Brazilian Institute for the Environment and Natural resources).

This label guarantees sustainable management of natural resources and timber logging.

It also guarantees sustainable preservation of the Brazilian forest, and particularly of the Amazon forest.

Assembly techniques

The wood-frame enables a large variety of architectural designs and styles of construction.

The structure is composed of a uniform grid of vertical poles and of horizontal crossbeams and crossbars, which enclose the construction, forming the frame on which the wooden elements are assembled.

This construction technique consists of assembling a "skeleton" of vertical standard section poles.

Some assemblies

Thanks to the high load-bearing capacity of the beams and posts, a spacious volume is left for the interior living space, open and airy.
