Facade Padouk Linus
Cubyc Architects has really shown us a fine piece of architectural design with this impressive villa in Moerbrugge. For this project they chose to work with the Padouk Linus series. Padouk is a highly durable type of wood with a reddish colour that turns into a silver grey over time.
On each floor, the planks have been placed in full length and without seams, which stresses the sleek and modern design of the villa even more. On top of that, the wooden cladding has been installed in such a way, that there is a minimal loss of light through the windows. A job well done by Woodstoxx and Cubyc Architects!

Padouk/Paduk is characterized by its coral red colour that changes with time in a soft silver-grey colour. This wood species grows mainly in Central and West Africa. Padouk is a very stable type of wood that hardly distorts after it has been placed. However, Padouk also achieves outstanding points on sustainability. The wood type belongs to the durability class 1-2.
After 25 years, the wood is still in perfect condition. The workability of this type of wood is good, both with machines and by hand. The surface finish is also good with solvent-based paint. For people who are looking for an exclusive type of hardwood for their façade cladding, they will not be disappointed with Padouk.
