Featuring our charred timber cladding in Siberian Larch with varying widths and surface fixed for a project in North London.
Nicknamed “Darling House” which isn’t its official name, that’s confidential… Crawford Partnership designed away from the norm with this stylish inverted curve that defines a period in history. Hints of art deco coupled with the modern multi-grey bricks and wrapped around the charred cladding is the aluminium pressing.
In contrast and a real focal point to this project is a minute detail, this is the yellow door number, we love this, out of nowhere and perfectly placed. Other larger details such as the door reveals were calculated with precision and the use of multiple widths of cladding allows for exact alignment. The cladding also extended to the doors.
Tim Spiller from Crawford Partnership “We’ve been very happy with the product, and think it looks fantastic. Definitely on our list of products for other projects going forward, so looking forward to working again together too.”
Takage is the Japanese name for our Charred Siberian Larch Shou Sugi Ban® cladding, it has been used in house building in many parts of the work for hundreds of years and continues to form part of extensions, new build projects as well as large commercial schemes.
Architect Alan Crawford “It does give a beautiful textural quality in contrast with the brick, whilst continuing the colour pallet used in the project. Hopefully you’ve seen the first-floor internal ceiling, with the timber glulam beams and the plywood finish to the ceiling.”
