SecilVit MD Facade Cork Cladding on Grand Designs
Unique cladding in the form of the SecilVit MD Facade Cork Board system (manufactured by Amorim) was featured in a recent episode of Grand Designs House of the Year on Channel 4.
‘The house enclosure is formed in CLT. This is well crafted and detailed and left exposed on the interior. Being externally insulated in cork might at first be a surprise but it is all part of the innovation and integrated design that has gone into the project. The cork clads walls, roof and underside, reinforcing in a slightly different way the idea of a floating object. An external balcony with built-in seating is in oak and this visually invades the cork cladding thereby making the composition work as a whole. Nesting and bat boxes have also been cleverly incorporated.’
