THE SOLUTION

Norclad Microshades Brunnea Treated Redwood timber cladding was chosen because of the UV inhibitors added during the preservation process, it also comes with a 30-year warranty against rot & fungal decay.

Supplied as 50 x 50 battens in a hit and miss arrangement, also supplied 200 x 50 fins to give the elevations depth and solar shading. Simply installed back to a timber substructure, NORclad timber cladding was a cost-effective material that help deliver the design aspirations of the Architect. It allowed for the seamless transition of external cladding to the interior cladding.
