Untreated Siberian Larch was supplied for this project, this will weather down to a silver grey to blend in to its surroundings, and contrast the other materials on the building. NORclad Grade B was supplied, offering a fair spread of knots, along with the distinctive grain of the species.
The bulk of the horizontal cladding is a bespoke chamfered profile (Ex 25 x 100mm) that was agreed with the Architect.
Vertical timbers on the building are in a number of dimensions, Ex 25 x 100, Ex 50 x 50mm, and Ex 50 x 75mm.
Alongside both orientations of timber are bespoke corner trims, and window reveals.
