    Blackbutt timber ‘fins’ blend perfectly with natural environment at University of Queensland Oral Health Facility

    Urbanline Architectural

    Blackbutt timber ‘fins’ from Urbanline Architectural were specified for an interior project at the University of Queensland Oral Health Centre in Herston, Brisbane. LendLease was the builder for the tertiary oral health facility, the largest in Australia.

    Urbanline Architectural supplied approximately 7000 lineal metres of Blackbutt timber ‘fins’ with a matching staircase handrail. The fully customised and precision machined tongue and groove profiles cover the width of the building’s steel posts with specialised CNC routing and drilling for the striking silver bolts.

    Chosen by the architect due to its medium and even grain that blends perfectly with the surrounding native gum trees, Blackbutt provides a contrast to the dental facility’s clean and clinical environment with a softer, welcoming vibe.

    Installation was simplified thanks to the shape of the profiles, which also minimised the effects of natural timber movement. The profiles were coated with Cutek Extreme to enhance the hardwood’s natural beauty and long-term dimensional stability.
