Project Information

The site is located Curraheen Cork City  , Traditional Japanese method shou sugi ban, also known as yakisugi, makes charred wood resistant to harsh weather conditions and ensures it is durable in time. Main advantage is that surface does not change its colour in time. Also, charred layer is resistant to mould, insects, water and even fire. In Japan, this technology was introduced 800 years ago. The simple vernacular forms were clad in the charred timber cladding with punctures for light and view.
