XFrame x S9

XFrame is an innovative, light-weight timber frame construction system that achieves circularity. Born out of New Zealand, the modular, sustainable and flexible new-age construction method uses 30% less material than standard timber wall framing, is carbon negative, rapidly recoverable and manufactured from sustainably sourced structural engineered timber.

Bridging the gap between manufacturer and design professionals, Studio Nine have been engaged by XFrame to prove up their system in a digital environment, creating a suite of Revit 3D modelling families that enables users to design a building incorporating the XFrame system. Through in-depth collaboration, the Revit components have been designed for interoperability with XFrame’s own systems, streamlining the design and manufacturing process and ensuring the digital prototype was ready for market testing.

XFrame has been used on two S9 interior fitout projects to date, as well as forming the basis for the design of the Assembly Three suite of products.
