The homeowners sought a modern look for the 1920s residence that was previously masked by a large roof and masonry. The architects looked for a natural wood cladding material that could act as a rain screen and provide a simple, clean and controlled texture. The product needed to offer the ability and flexibility for modern detailing that would soften the presence of the home, making Kebony an obvious choice.

“Kebony wood provided constructability that couldn’t be matched by other wood siding types,” said Jonathan Kuhn, the architect responsible for the home’s renovation. “The Southern Yellow Pine was easy to work with, which helped achieve close tolerance in the detailing and assembly without using special equipment.”

Kuhn was also attracted to Kebony’s sustainability and longevity due to the organic, bio-based solution used to modify the wood via patented technology. Its timeless qualities provide an element of depth that Kuhn knew would age gracefully over time as the gray patina develops.

The result of the yearlong project was a full renovation including a second floor addition along with a habitable attic. The addition is a significant structure clad in wood that intersects with the expansive roof of the existing house. The interior also features contemporary design that matches its new exterior. The new form and materials of the home maintain the context of the urban yet residential neighborhood.
