Bourne Valley House
Exterior Pika-pika Cladding
Kent, United Kingdom
The Bourne Valley property was originally built in 1963 of brick and tile. The house faces south and is situated on the low hills in the county of Kent, south of London, overlooking the Medway river valley and surrounded by orchards and vineyards.
The owners purchased it in 2020 in a poor condition and decided to strip it down to the bare walls to renovate it into a modern 21st century eco house.
So it was clear that the cladding material should also be natural and sustainable. After an extensive search, the owners decided on our Pika-Pika Yakisugi, which on the one hand blends harmoniously into the overall concept with its combination of light base colour and contrasting dark grain, but on the other hand stands out due to its special beauty.
Yakisugi product used in this project:

"We found Nakamoto Forestry Europe after an extensive search for a sustainable and striking cladding to complement our modern design in its field and forest environment. The house just looks great!"
