Charred Timber House

Showcasing the charred timber technique known as Yakisugi or Shou Sugi Ban, our Vulcan Cladding has maintained the beautiful dark finish despite harsh weather conditions

Abodo’s Vulcan Timber Cladding was charred in the Japanese style known as Yakisugi – or Shou Sugi Ban.

The Vulcan Cladding charred finish is a design feature intended to reduce maintenance for the home owner – the thick char layer on the exterior of the timber acts as a barrier to the prominent UV rays found in the region.

Set in Wanaka where summer temperatures soar to 35 degrees the char layer reduces fading and recoat periods while maintaining a beautifully textured black surface.

These photos show the house after two summers, with the house remaining charcoal black and relatively unaffected by the harsh local weather.

Part of Wanaka’s Stackbrae development, this house is masterfully planned and designed by Assembly Architects of Arrowtown.

This project uses Vulcan Cladding in Charred finish, WB10S 135x20 profile.
