Wood has a wonderful way of adding warmth and comfort to a home. Austrian design studio Innauer-Matt Architekten shows off the beauty of the building material in Exhibition House, a mobile pavilion commissioned as a showroom for timber construction company Kaspar Greber. The 30-square-meter building features a gabled roof inspired by the local vernacular. Despite its traditional gabled shape, the compact pavilion is decidedly modern in design with its clean lines, minimalist style, and playful circular windows and door. Innauer-Matt Architekten built the pavilion in the shape of a house in reference to the client company’s housing building services. Kaspar Greber’s in-house solid wood product “Nadelstreif/Pinstripe” is used in the exterior and interior. Different varieties of untreated, raw timber, which range from spruce to fir to oak , add texture and subtle gradients of color. “Doors and windows are round and invite visitors to take a closer look,” write the architects. “The protruding wooden dowels in the cut-out openings demonstrate the stiction-based construction. Moreover, the wall, ceiling and floor connections can be seen true to scale.” Related: Handsome Austrian house is clad in a latticed facade made from local spruce The Exhibition House is movable and spacious enough to be used for events, from trade fairs or the setting of corporate dinners and weddings. The building is designed as a mobile brand ambassador for wood. + Innauer-Matt Architekten Via ArchDaily Images © Dakro Todorovic

Called ‘The Mansio’, the house will function as a temporary residence for writers, as well as a venue for different events during a six-month-long journey that forms part of the Hexham Book Festival and Arts&Heritage. The project was conceived as an exploration of concepts of borders, with a specific reference to the ancient Roman empire. “The rich history of Hadrian’s Wall and its peoples provide a creative foundation for the authors involved in The Mansio project, writing new responses to the ever-present issue of borders and colonisation and the unique history of this ancient Roman landscape,” said director of Hexham Book Festival Susie Troup. Related: Solar-Powered ‘Self Sustained Module’ Goes Where No Other Building Can Go The Mansio began its journey in South Shields earlier this month, and will continue to travel along Hadrian’s Wall. During the next few months it will visit the Roman forts of Arbeia, Birdoswald, Senhouse and Carlisle Castle. + Matthew Butcher + Owain Williams + Kieran Thomas Wardle Via Dezeen Photography is by Brotherton/Lock
