Award winning geometric cladding, Alfriston School

Thermally modified Frake supplied by EcoChoice

Architects: Duggan Morris

Frake is a beautiful West African hardwood which is often used for interior applications due to its lower stability and durability.

EcoChoice supplied thermally modified Frake cladding for this project - which has enhanced stability and durability. The treated FSC certified Frake has an initial golden colour which weathers relatively quickly to a beautiful silver grey.


Alfriston School Ecochoice

Architects Duggan Morris won a RIBA design award for this project. Their attention to the surrounding environment as well as to minute detailing achieved a great blend of form and purpose to the all-girls school. 

The 18 x 140mm PAR boards were pre-assembled as panels off-site. For safety reasons, they were also flame retardant treated (due to its increased porosity, Frake takes up the retardant treatment really well).
