Opened in October 2017, Kebony was used for more than 100,000 square feet of decking at the Wharf, as well as cladding on certain store fronts and rooftop decks. reSAWN TIMBER co. visited the Wharf 6 months after installation to see how the decking weathered.
reSAWN TIMBER co. recently returned to their Longport, NJ residence project to get a more complete understanding of how their SURETO shou sugi ban exterior siding and HAWAITO shou sugi ban exterior siding weathers in a real-world application. This material was specified by Philadelphia Design Co., known for high-end residential design. Materials were specified with a 5″ wide face and shiplap milling with a 1/8″ reveal. Installation is being done by Seashore Exteriors, a 4th generation company specializing in residential and commercial exteriors in the south NJ area.
In an article published in the Vol. 3 2018 issue, Residential Design Magazine featured a case study on the Wayzata Residence, highlighting the use of reSAWN’s NIGIRI shou sugi ban charred Accoya. Designed by Minneapolis-based firm Snow Krielich Architects, the Wayzata Residence is situated on a beautifully scenic location with incomparable proximity to Lake Minnetonka, one of the most popular lakes in the “Land of 10,000 Lakes”. Matthew Kreilich, FAIA, who led the design on this project, chose reSAWN’s NIGIR shou sugi ban charred accoya for the exterior cladding.
