Veritys Ceiling

The Grand Designs eco-house, Crossway, addressed a huge array of issues associated with the design of the humble dwelling. Yet one thing that hadn't been anticipated, was the whispering gallery effect, created by the amazing tiled vault which forms the roof of the two end bedrooms.

The only way to eliminate this was to introduce a ceiling, but with so many different heights and angles to contend with, this was far from easy.

The result was this complex compound curved timber structure built by the skilled joiners at Mounts Hill, which has now made Verity's spectacular bedroom even more amazing!
