Surrounded by snow-covered mature trees, this private residence is the perfect retreat located in Soda Springs, California. The exterior features YOSHIMI shou sugi ban charred Accoya exterior cladding, and NIGIRI shou sugi ban charred Accoya soffits. The large windows throughout provide a look into the snow-covered landscape, allowing the beautiful scenery to be appreciated from inside the home. The concrete walls, combined with the shou sugi ban cladding and the surrounding snow, provide a contrast of design elements. The property sits on the edge of Serene Lakes, surrounded by approximately 3,000 acres of open space and trails.

Accoya wood is the result of decades of research and development that has brought together a long-established, extensively proven wood modification technique and leading-edge patented technology – acetylation to create a high-performance wood, ideal for outdoor use and challenging applications. By significantly enhancing the durability and dimensional stability of fast-growing and abundantly available certified wood species, Accoya wood provides compelling environmental advantages over slow-growing hardwoods (which are often unsustainably sourced), woods treated with toxic preservative chemicals, and non-renewable carbon-intensive materials such as plastics and steel.

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, “shou-sugi-ban” and “yakisugi” have become common nomenclature for modern charred wood designs in general.  All of reSAWN’s charred products are made in the USA, in our facility in Telford, PA.

Alexander Jermyn Architecture has developed a diverse body of work including residential, cultural, and commercial projects. The approach to each design problem is with an artistic and technical rigor guided by a commitment to craft in architecture. The work addresses the fundamental problems of space, proportion, light and materials, and their intrinsic properties within architecture. The intensive research for each project guides the design process in lieu of following a stylistic agenda, striving for an architecture from which multiple readings emerge, exploring the associations of program and space, material and detail, complexity and simplicity.
