ABOUT THE PROJECT
In the southern part of the Canadian provence of Alberta, this private residence in Calgary used reSAWN’s TORA shou sugi ban charred cypress exterior siding. The design is largely cubic with various squares and rectangles jutting out from the primary building structure. TORA shou sugi ban, from reSAWN’s CHARRED NEUTRAL collection, maintains a natural color tone with varying depths of revealed wood grain.
The brown of the TORA shou sugi ban siding is a natural accent to the other colors of black and white. Off to one side of the residence, TORA shou sugi ban surrounds individual rooms that appear to float off of the side of the structure. Away from the main building and overlooking the yard, the rooms give an intriguing aesthetic from the outside, and provide a more developed view from the inside.
