Pivot House Spiralling Roof Taking Shape

Last week’s site visit was an exciting chance to see the latest progress, in particular the spiralling timber roof that we developed in collaboration with Structure Workshop. The structure is made from sustainably-sourced glue laminated timber comprising four main elements: An external ring beam, an internal ring beam, a series of timber posts and a series of cut beams connecting them.

The roof trusses are laid to fall inwards towards the central courtyard and heart of the home. The roof spirals upwards to reach its highest point to the Southeast where the large roof overhang provides fixed solar shading.
