Black Charred Wood Siding Creates A Bold Look For This Lakeside Home
April 22, 2020
Atelier Schwimmer has designed a new house on the banks of Lac-Brome in Quebec, Canada.
The exterior of the home is clad in larch, which has been charred to give it that burnt black appearance.
The black siding also provides a contrasting element to recessed and less exposed planks that were finished with a natural oil to protect them.
Here’s a close up of the black charred wood siding that shows how it still allows the grain of the wood to show through.
