Detached house in Lower Austria: carbonised larch

Building project: Detached house in Lower Austria
Product used: Carbonised larch

This detached house in Lower Austria impresses with its particularly exciting architecture. The modern façade made of carbonised larch wood is an ideal match for the light-coloured soffit and the expansive glass surfaces.
An interesting eye-catcher is the deliberate gap in the roof, through which daylight falls on the glazed windows. Without the black charred larch façade, the building would appear rather plain, but the carbonised wood, combined with the special architectural design, makes the detached house a unique eye-catcher.
Another unusual feature of this project is the original use of leftover carbonised larch wood: it was cleverly used as a birdhouse and in the form of a letterbox.

Carbonised woods

Charred black, three-dimensional look, strong character structure

Using our traditional, vertical deep-charring process, our woods are carbonised with pure flame according to the Japanese Yakisugi method, resulting in extremely resistant, durable wood products with a unique, black charred surface structure which, thanks to its exclusive character, is also compared to alligator skin, silk wood or leather.

Refined woods

Traditionally carbonised, brushed and carefully finished by hand.

If you opt for the refined style, the already carbonised wood is then carefully brushed by hand and refined using a special process so that the grain and structure are revealed under the layer of carbon. Depending on the processing and type of wood, our wood finishing creates an exclusive colour look: from elegant silver-grey to an ingenious reclaimed wood look in rustic brown tones.
