SILA

Siberian larch comes from the area bordering the Arctic Ocean. Thanks to the extreme climate, the Siberian larch grows considerably slower than its European counterpart. As a result, the structure of the wood is much more homogeneous, making it highly durable (class II-III).

Crematorium ‘Hart van Berkelland’

Haarlo – Crematorium ‘Hart van Berkelland’ – 2017

This crematorium is situated next to the original buildings of the Aamschot estate and its exterior fits in perfectly with the park environment. The round shapes on the interior and exterior are made entirely out of wood. The existing buildings on the estate have been renovated in the original style, but adjusted to modern standards. These buildings have been designed to allow family and friends to meet after the service.

Tholen – Oesterdam resort – 2019

In the centre of National Park Oosterschelde, along the open water, you can find Resort Waterrijk Oesterdam. Designer Piet Boon specifically opted to use sustainable materials. Siberian larch has been finely sawn, allowing it to bond well with the two-layer coating. This limits maintenance to a minimum, yet its original look and feel is maintained. This natural look makes the cottages fit perfectly with the surrounding nature.

APPLICATIONS

Siberian larch distinguishes itself in particular by its high density (650 kg/m3), fine annual rings and a low sapwood ratio. These properties allow for many applications, including facade cladding, stairwells, door and window frames, floors, furniture, etc.
