Black Charred Wood Siding Creates A Bold Look For This Lakeside Home

Atelier Schwimmer has designed a new house on the banks of Lac-Brome in Quebec, Canada.

The exterior of the home is clad in larch, which has been charred to give it that burnt black appearance.

The black siding also provides a contrasting element to recessed and less exposed planks that were finished with a natural oil to protect them.
