Winner of The Western Red Cedar Award, 2010
The house is wrapped in as skin of vertical cedar battens (providing privacy and solar protection) which appear to emerge from the front fence intentionally confusing the relationship between built form and landscape. Timber is used throughout this project for its aesthetic relationship with the surrounding landscape setting and also for its durability in the harsh coastal environment. The circular form was easily achieved through the use of horizontal softwood cedar ship-lap cladding which is secured to the primary timber structural frame by opposing vertical cedar battens.
All sidings and battens protected with CUTEK.
