Silva Timber’s Western Red Cedar Microline Channel timber cladding has been used to create a contrasting, modern gym building on the grounds of a Grade II Listed hotel.
Situated six miles from the city of Bath, Bath Lodge Castle is a Grade II Listed hotel and restaurant.
Its owner, a health and fitness enthusiast, wanted to add a gym to enhance the castle’s offering. Timber frame designer, Andrew Best, was consulted to create a south-facing modern building to contrast with the historic hotel.
The contemporary gym building required a material that would insulate it in the summer months to prevent overheating. The external cladding also had to complement its surrounding woodland.
After receiving samples from Silva Timber, and visiting the company’s stand at Timber Expo, Andrew selected its Western Red Cedar Microline Channel timber cladding for the new outbuilding.
It surpasses the UK’s current standard for quality and consistency.
The boards offer the interesting grain patterns of timber, whilst not compromising on quality. They can be fitted vertically, as well as horizontally, and specified in a number of profiles.
Silva Timber is able to machine the boards to suit certain project requirements. This eliminated Andrew’s concerns about window linings, corner trims and fascia boards for his contemporary gym project.
