UNIQUE SPLIT LEVEL RESTAURANT CLAD IN CHARRED ACCOYA® WOOD – AUSTRALIA
Barangaroo House, a free-standing, three-storey restaurant, has become one of the first projects in Sydney to utilise Accoya® wood c
ladding and the distinctive Japanese charring technique, Shou Sugi Ban. Situated on the edge of Sydney Harbour, Barangaroo House opened in December 2017 and is the latest venture by one of Australia’s most celebrated chefs, Matt Moran.
Inspired by the potential of creating a building in the round, the unique split level restaurant was designed by architects, Collins and Turner, taking on a remarkable organic form clad in charred Accoya®. 45mm of Dowelled Accoya® and 45mm of Half Dowelled Accoya® were laminated into a series of predetermined radii with a Shou Sugi Ban (medium char) finish applied to create a striking charcoal appearance.

DILLON KYLE ARCHITECTS OFFICE BUILDING GIVES THE WOW FACTOR WITH ACCOYA – USA
When Dillon Kyle Architects set out to design their new office space across the street from the Houston Center for Photography, they needed creative solutions to fit a 5,000 square foot building plus parking on the lot’s small unique space.
The exterior has a commercial boxy look, so the team looked for creative cladding finishes to wrap the building and also serve as a rainscreen. After dismissing glass and papier-mâché options, the team settled on Accoya® wood. An abstract leaf-like pattern is carved into 2,500 eight-foot long by eight-inches tall and 11/16-inches in depth, Accoya® wood wrapping the entire building.
