Single-family house in Silesia

Fired wood is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also has many practical advantages. Thanks to the burning process, the wood becomes more resistant to weather conditions, insects and fungi.

Single-family house in Silesia

This guarantees the longevity of the facade, minimizing the need for maintenance and replacement.

The SILESIA-2 variant used in this project consists of larch boards that have been tanned using the Shou Sugi Ban method and then brushed. This revealed the unique wood grain pattern for each board. Additionally, the boards were impregnated. The high resistance to external factors of fired boards makes them an excellent choice for finishing facades or fences.

By deciding to use black boards both on the facade and the fence gate, and to cover the roof with black sheet metal, the architects thoughtfully introduced contrasting elements that add depth and character to the design. Brick pillars not only provide a perfect contrast to the dark gate and facade, but also introduce warmth and authenticity. The white stone used to finish the floor of the extensive terrace creates a contrast both in terms of colors and materials used. At the same time, it gives the space freshness and elegance. The lush green surroundings complement the color palette. The design integrates perfectly into the natural landscape, but also creates a unique combination between a raw finish and invigorating vegetation.
