Bringing together visionary professionals to realise a unique design
The construction of Tremenheere was a deliberately collaborative effort. Coordination from Carpenter Oak enabled several local companies to work together, combining specialist skills, cutting-edge technologies and quality materials.
The dry shell was erected in two weeks, thanks to careful project management from Carpenter Oak. The resulting space is now open and enjoyed by hundreds of people every month. For the Tremenheere team, the benefits are clear – they welcome visitors to a stunning gallery that functions exceptionally well on a day to day basis, for every exhibition.
An imaginative and impressive use of timber engineering
Two open gallery spaces sit within an oak frame, with a huge roof lantern allowing in natural light. To create two open floors of gallery space, uninterrupted by stairs, access to the upper floor is via a sloped path and oak bridge.
The building is insulated by thick layers of recycled wood and clad in locally sourced green larch. For the internal finish, the structure is wrapped in 70mm of solid timber panels, each a giant seven by three meters. This has created a strong surface on which to hang artwork, and allowing the natural qualities of the wood frame to be fully visible throughout the gallery.
