Driven by our country’s love of all things black and a preference for awesome looking buildings; we wanted to bring charred timber cladding to the masses. Simply because we believe it looks incredible.
The Japanese practice of “Shou-Sugi-Ban” is ancient, they have been charring wood to waterproof homes for centuries; but for some reason it was still incredibly expensive here. We needed to reduce the cost, but maintain the quality finish.
Combining our skills in construction, engineering and material science; we discovered new ways to burn the wood at speed and with consistency.
At last charred wood is accessible to all.
We are based in Christchurch, happily supplying architects, developers, construction companies and home owners across NZ.Make EnquiryDownload Specification
