Asheville is that type of unique, special place that lingers sweetly in your mind and memories for years to come. The city’s rich architectural legacy with its mix of Art Deco, Beaux Arts and Neoclassical styles is the perfect retro-urban backdrop to the edgy energy that emanates from the locally owned-shops and art galleries, distinctive restaurants and exciting entertainment venues. With great attention to detail and sound environmental principles Carlton-Edwards specified reSAWN’s IRUKA shou sugi ban exterior siding at this newly built residence.

reSAWN’s CHARRED offering features cypress, western red cedar, Accoya, Kebony, black walnut, red oak, white oak and reclaimed hemlock that is burnt in the Japanese tradition of shou sugi ban.  Our award-winning CHARRED products pay homage to the traditional Japanese technique of “shou-sugi-ban” aka “yakisugi” without being literal.  Historically very specific in their definition, “shousugi-ban” and “yakisugi” have become common nomenclature for modern charred wood designs in general.  Shou sugi ban exterior siding is intended to weather beautifully in place, and maintain its performance standards. All of reSAWN’s CHARRED products are made in the USA, in their facility in Telford, PA.

Carlton-Edwards is an assemblage of talented professionals of complementary skills and great ambition. Their approach is based firmly on our intrinsic nature to listen and observe. From this foundation they pursue inspiring and purposeful works of architecture through the refinement of ideas which respond to the specific factors of each endeavor. They undertake each project with passion and rigor in delivering graceful solutions that merge functionality and aesthetic beauty.
