“A mathematician’s house”

We found another charred cedar house by architect Tetsuya Nakazono (via Mocoloco).

We actually had an email a few weeks ago from a couple who are building a house in Germany and wanted to do charred cedar siding, but on a budget.

I think I scared them off when I told them the process and amount of labour needed to char all the planks! After you get past the expense of labour and materials it’s a really low maintenance siding that will last a lifetime. They never emailed me back haha…

What a beautiful collection of materials. The powder coated staircase, red brick, and black charred wall. I want a courtyard with a tree!
