Zen hall

Designed by Reynolds Architecture, the brief was to create a modern farmhouse on a steading arrangement with a central ‘zen’ hall for meditation. Russwood Vertical Grain Siberian Larch (VG SILA) adds a natural sense of energy and wellbeing in the stunning meditation space, which is flooded with natural light from the glazed ceiling and windows. VG SILA is used extensively in the custom joinery including ceiling and raised walkway, combining outstanding dimensional stability with a tactile and warm finish..

Beautifully irregular

The wooden flooring adds to this warm effect, with Russwood European Oak flooring in Smoked Ebony giving an aged and authentic appearance. The Smoked Ebony boards create a rich, deep tone, while a range of distressing techniques, such as hand scraping provide a beautiful irregularity to the boards.

Scotlarch® Cladding wraps around the building

Layering effect

To the exterior, sawn Scotlarch® cladding was laid in contrasting configuration by I & K Ferguson Joinery, while different angles were used to create a layering effect and break up the mass of timber. With its lively figuring and frequent knots, home grown Scotlarch® compliments the rustic original stone. The finishing touch is the wrap-around Thermopine® decking which frames this countryside sanctuary.

The team at Russwood were very helpful when showing the client around the cladding display area and flooring showroom and with their explanations of the product.
