Light Gauge Steel Frame and its Chameleon qualities
Light gauge steel frame does not even have to look modern and stand out from its more traditionally fabricated surroundings.
Light gauge steel frame can be clad in any material externally in order to seamlessly blend in with its surroundings; brick, tiles, stone, render or timber boarding. The cladding is purely cosmetic and therefore does not need to be relied on for the structural integrity of the building.
A project in Greece, where the local surroundings were not disturbed despite using a highly, modern and efficient construction process. You suddenly begin to realise that this can really be used, virtually anywhere.
Another example of the chameleon qualities of light gauge steel frame, a timber building blending in perfectly (but so much better insulated and stronger) with it’s neighbouring houses; some over one hundred years old, in New Zealand Auckland.
