A striking aesthetic

The Wooden House, designed by Fiddes Architects, is located in Gellan, south of the Water of Feugh, and enjoys a picture-perfect location with southern light and hill views. In a nod to older agricultural buildings in the area, the L-shaped building combines a rusty Cor-Ten and grey corrugated roof and an exterior envelope clad in Russwood SILA Select® Siberian Larch, installed horizontally and vertically, by Scott Duthie Joinery for a striking aesthetic. 

Consistent weathered look

The cladding is laid as a 125mm open rainscreen sawn face, and is factory coated with SiOO:x Mid Grey, which provides an immediate and consistent weathered look to the timber. Unlike translucent stains or paints, SiOO:x offers superior durability whilst allowing the figuring of the timber to shine through. This emphasis on quality goes down to every last detail, such as the choice of L-GoFix® screws for clean, effective fixing and neat detailing.

Brushed flooring

Inside, Russwood European Oak Honey Character Grade flooring provides a naturally durable surface, especially for high traffic areas such as kitchens. The wire brushing creates texture by brushing out the spring wood to reveal the hard summer wood, allowing the natural light to pick up the beauty of the grain through the large windows. This beautiful flooring adds warmth and character to a home that sits harmoniously alongside its traditional neighbours.

Russwood provided a fantastic experience as always, a pleasure to deal with when needing input & advice at the design stage. On site the materials arrived when required with no complications and the quality provided met our expectations.
