The Rainscreen House

A successful renovation of a century’s old home in the Chevy Chase neighborhood of Washington, DC. The architect looked for a natural wood cladding material that could act as a rain screen and provide a simple, clean and controlled texture.

“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. “Kebony was easy to work with, which helped achieve close tolerance in the detailing and assembly without using special equipment.”
