The preparation and installation of wood design ceilings in buildings is very old. Clearly, if wood was the first of building materials, it was also the first with which design ceilings were built.

The function of wood design ceilings has always been to amaze and move the visitors to the room where they are installed, highlighting the importance of the activities that take place in it. Also, wood design ceilings have been symbol of opulence and power of kings, emperors, religions and corporations; those able to afford to commission them to dazzle their guests. Before, wood design ceilings were found in temples, libraries or palaces, but now we can also see them in the halls and auditoriums of hotels and institutional buildings.

As specialists in wood ceilings we have been able to participate in the construction of wonderful wood design ceilings, but we never cease to be amazed by and value other works that we know. Here we bring you a small selection of 8 wood design ceilings that look really incredible.

  • The wooden ceilings are unique in their design, detailing and workmanship; no doubt an example of perfect project management! Congratulations! As a sensitive Architect who grew up in traditional houses with lot of external-internal wood work; I have developed a passion for the texture, grains and fragrance of different kinds of natural wood. For me it is the Ultimate Luxury!
