Design tends to renovate itself every season, every year, every decade or two. Nowadays, architectural design is pointing towards nature, resembling big concrete jungles like New York, more into a real, natural jungle. Green buildings and wood facades or cladding are the showstoppers in every big city you can visit.
This type of design communicates wholeness in any space you can find it in, it allows busy cities to breath. The good thing about this type of material is that it can last up to 50 years or more, if the right (not so complicated) care is applied. Cumaru or Ipe wood are known to be long lasting, and it holds up to any type of weather, allowing architects to have the best construction material allied for designing their best projects.
Some designers like to use wood cladding in just one side of the structure, or like in this project, cladding becomes the center piece of the entire design. Other uses, that will be talked about in other posts, are flooring, ceilings and decking. Any accent of wood in architectural design you can image, it can be done in hardwoods like Ipe or Cumaru.
The best thing about these type of materials is its cost-effectiveness, since price would not matter once you get to have your living piece of nature for more that 50 years. You would not have to deal with remodeling, since this type of design outlasts over the years, this design will not be outdated.
Here is the perfect example of a beautiful wood cladding project in New York done by Decks Life. This project exudes nature, design and luxury in the big concrete jungle, and the best thing is that it will last for year.
