Spotlight on CUBISM

Creating Geometric Interest with Western Red Cedar

CUBISM features both charred and non-charred western red cedar in a range of colors including neutral and bold color tones. Our CHARRED designs (CHOCHOL4TH DIMENSION & BAUHAUS) are carefully charred, misted with water, cooled, brushed and then stained/sealed.  The top coat sealer is applied prior to shipping (for exterior applications, we recommend sealing the back side as well as the face).  The burning process accentuates the wood grain and joinery and creates varying colors when viewed from different angles and in different light. Our non-charred designs (SALLE 41, DIAMANT, GRIS, MARE, NO. 609, VILLA SAVOYE, PABLO,  PRINCET) are designed to highlight the graphic interest of the wood grain and joinery. All designs are standardly offered in Clear grade and can be treated to Class A Fire Rating for Interior Application.

The architects considered a number of cladding options, including masonry, which is common along the lake, but they eventually settled on wood. Not just any wood, however. “We thought it would be interesting to do a modern interpretation of the masonry houses. As the design evolved, though, there was a desire to have it lighter. Then we moved to this wood. It’s burnt, brushed, and stained. As you get closer, you can see that the grain stands proud. It’s not necessarily a weathered look, but there’s an incredible softness to it,” Matt says. “There’s a quality to lakes—with the light sparkling off the water. The wood is like that. It has a similar reflectivity.”

Weathered Wood

reSAWN’s WEATHERED designs highlight wood’s natural beauty and allow the material to age gracefully in place with little to no maintenance.  Some of the WEATHERED designs feature our reactive finishes which seek to minimize the variation between newly installed and aged wood siding. We also offer unfinished Kebony (see MARKA and RUSS) and Accoya (see KOWHAI) which are high performing exterior woods that are meant to weather naturally to grey post-install.
