Roof Design

This design exercise was commissioned by a major roof tile manufacturer to explore some new possibilities for the use of their new range of shallow-pitch roof tiles.

Project Details

The twisted plane roof concept was developed in conjunction with workshop testing of the construction tolerances of the tiles, to ensure mounting and weatherproofing were not compromised. It is the first time a manufacturer has approved non-planar installation of roof tiles, following the demonstrated success of the design exercise.

The 3D modeling also explores the fun possibilities of the ‘deconstructed roof edge’, where the battens and rafters are carried beyond the hard edge of tiles, as if they were untrimmed thatch, giving the organic structure a more random and natural character.
