Silva Timber’s Siberian Larch bevel cladding has proven to be the ideal material to construct the Maggie’s cancer support centre in the Robert Parfett building in Manchester.
Each of Maggie’s unique buildings has been designed to create a relaxing, homely space encouraging a feeling of togetherness among its visitors and Siberian Larch was chosen to achieve exactly this.
The presence of natural materials helps Maggie’s achieve their goal of providing a non-clinical space where people can get practical, emotional and social support.
Siberian Larch is a very dense softwood ideal for cladding, particularly if you plan on applying a coloured finish as the natural colour tones are more consistent than the likes of Western Red Cedar.
As Maggie’s wanted to create a clean, fresh and light look to encourage people to drop in, they chose to finish the cladding in Sansin SDF Pickled White.
To finish the timber to the highest standard and provide the best protection against the elements, the cladding was factory coated at Silva Timber so it was ready to install straight after delivery.
The light colour palette of the building perfectly contrasts against the rich colours in the gardens that surround the whole building, creating a fantastic view from any point in the building.
