Accoya siding chosen for Stoke House Beach Restaurant

Shou Sugi Ban

Shou Sugi Ban

Distributed by Britton Timbers, Accoya was selected for the reconstruction of the historical and emblematic Stoke House in Melbourne.

Accoya cladding was chosen for this beach restaurant as it allowed the contractors, Van Haandle Group, to use a lighter wood than traditional Australian timbers. This resulted in savings in external fixings for the design of the large opening screen doors and dynamic louvre system which uses Accoya fins. Designed by Robert Simeoni Architects, they wanted to achieve a stable Shou Sugi Ban charred finish on the external fins which was only possible if Accoya was used rather than other Australian hardwoods.

The Shou Sugi Ban charred Accoya was finished using a base coat of Teknos primer and a Feast Watson finish coat. Finger jointed Accoya was also selected for all the joinery and curtain walls.

The 80m3 of Accoya used in the project provides the stable and low maintenance substrate to ensure that the opening screens and dynamic louvre system perform well and maintain the lines of the impeccable design despite being on St Kilda beach and only metres from the ocean.
