Lyon Residence

Exterior Gendai Cladding

Lyon France

Project Overview

In the vibrant city of Lyon, France, an attractive project stands as a testament to the fusion of modern architectural innovation with the timeless appeal of traditional materials. Clad in Nakamoto Forestry’s Gendai, this residence redefines the boundaries of design and sustainability, marking a significant addition to our portfolio of reference projects across Europe.

The Lyon project, in the outskirts of one of France’s most historic cities, embodies the essence of contemporary living. Its design leverages the unique properties of Gendai wood, known for its durability, natural beauty, and ecological benefits. The project is a showcase of how modern architecture can harmonize with nature, offering a living space that is both luxurious and mindful of environmental sustainability.

This architectural marvel is distinguished by its clean lines, expansive glass facades, and the striking contrast of Gendai’s charred wood against the lush green backdrop. The use of Yakisugi ensures a low-maintenance facade that ages gracefully, enhancing the building’s aesthetic appeal over time. The thoughtful integration of indoor and outdoor spaces invites natural light into the home, creating an atmosphere of warmth and openness.

As a reference project, the Lyon residence illustrates the potential of Nakamoto Forestry’s products in European architecture. It serves as a source of inspiration for architects, designers, and homeowners alike, demonstrating the versatility of Yakisugi in a variety of design contexts.
