Western Red Cedar Trim Boards from Silva Timber have been used to refurbish a 1970s bungalow in Southwest London.
The outdated bungalow required a 21st century refresh which was provided by architects Etc Urban. Philip Thornton, Managing Director, etc Urban explains: “Owners Ed and Claire requested the 2 bed bungalow to be turned into a contemporary family house comprising of a floating timber box above an existing plinth.”
Silva Timber’s Western Red Cedar 19 x 38 Trim Boards were used extensively on the exterior of the property. Western Red Cedar was used to give the building more warmth and character.
The project demonstrates the versatility of Western Red Cedar; used for cladding, fencing as well as a custom built gate.
Silva Timber’s 19 x 38 trim boards are often used to add an elegant and contemporary look to gardens.
The crisp, clean lines and warm colour tones of cedar enable to product to blend with natural surroundings and contrast nicely with man-made materials such as slate, render and glass panels.
Philip adds, “The Western Red Cedar trim boards are used to give texture to the simple forms and to link visually between the elements. They are spaced in order to create shadow gaps, giving a uniform “hatched” architectural textured facade.”
