Manufactured by reSAWN TIMBER, Accoya was chosen from the MATSU shou sugi ban charred collection for the facade of a project in Bellport, New York. MATSU (translates from the Japanese to ‘pine tree’) is the brand name for one of the six Charred Accoya designs that reSAWN offers.
Designed by Studio DB, the Accoya was burnt on the outer facing side of the tongue and groove cladding (3-4 inches thick and 5 inches wide).
Located in the coastal town of Bellport, reSAWN suggested Accoya because of its extreme durability, exterior weathering capabilities, FSC® certification, exterior warranty, and hardness of Accoya.
Charred using the ancient Japanese technique of shou sugi ban, MATSU is finished without brushing off the soft charcoal layer. This charcoal layer is a sacrificial wear layer that will flake slowly (as is expected for any natural building product) over time to reveal a blackened effect underneath with variations in colour from grey to brown tones – perfect for this heavily wooden landscape.
