The Krypto Project is a contemporary residence that distinguishes itself within its neighborhood. Nestled along the Central Coast of California, Carmel by the Sea is celebrated for its enchanting architecture, charming streets, and vibrant artistic community. Residents are drawn to this locale for its laid-back and idyllic lifestyle.

The exterior of the Krypto Project showcases reSAWN TIMBER co.’s CUSTOM Kebony® wood. The photos highlight a visual contrast between the CUSTOM Kebony® on day one versus its transformed appearance after one year of weathering. The weathering process imparts a graceful and distinctive character to the wood, contributing to the home’s aesthetic while also reflecting a commitment to quality and innovation. Kebony® wood, known for its sustainable and durable characteristics, enhances the overall design, providing a harmonious blend of modernity and natural beauty.

Kebony® is impregnated with furfuryl alcohol, which improves the durability and performance of the wood. When burnt, the wood has a dense, outer char layer that provides extra protection against rot and decay. reSAWN’s Kebony designs can be used for exterior applications, interior applications, and decking.
