Oak & Broad
It looks similar to our Belgian Oiled Oak. Here are some shots.

What material has been used o the ceiling? What colour is it? Thank you - Great room, we are considering doing a similar raised ceiling, asked architect about likely hood of echoing and he's suggesting we line ceiling - I presume he means something like this - Wondering if the people who live here have any comments - do you have echoing?, has this panelling helped?

I am still fascinated by this ceiling! Have you coloured the concrete? In this photo it looks to have a Limed look, it seems to have a warm tone, it is very effective, it seems to balance the whole room beautifully.
How thick is the cement applied. Thankyou

Thank you. the form work was oiled. The concrete is not coloured or treated. the ceiling is 25 cm thick, and tapers to 15 cm at the edges.

Can't tell you much. It was made by the owner who is an amateur carpenter.

In a sense, all windows here are custom-made. But these clerestory windows are just frameless glass plates which were inserted into U-profiles that are hidden in the concrete ceiling.

Super-Modern spaces like this call out for white walls - so leave the walls white.

If you want red, bring in a red oriental carpet for the sitting area and put a bowl of red roses on your table

Oak & Broad
Oiled finish over oak has several advantages. It can be touched up in small areas that have heavy traffic without having to refinish the whole floor. Here are some recent Belgian oiled finishes we used over white oak.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This clerestory window, which wraps a corner of a living area in a fairly light and modern residence, gives the impression that the ceiling/roof floats above the walls. The extension of the ceiling beyond the plane of the walls means that the light coming in via the clerestories is indirect, giving the room plenty of light without too much heat or glare.
Scheer & Co. added this to The High Life: Clerestory Windows
Any space can look and feel like an open, airy loft with the addition of clerestory windows.

Clerestory Windows: Pros - Eliminate the need for electrical lighting during the day; provide cross ventilation; get rid of hot air (since hot air rises) Cons - hard to reach to clean, open and install; provide no view Can be used in green rooms for lots of natural light.
