This new childcare unit on Hardthorn Road has used Timeless Timber cladding to enhance the finish of the contemporary, purpose built facility. The design utilises vertical Timeless Timber British Larch cladding boards in a shiplap profile with a coating of Sikkens. The cladding adds interest to the design, softening the building’s façade and brining with it real warmth.

The project comprises the construction of a house and private garden to provide residential childcare accommodation for the local community.

Materials

British grown larch cladding: the heartwood of this species has a natural durability rating of class 3 (BS EN 350-2) and is able to achieve a desired service life of 15 years when used outdoors in its natural state.
