Exposed wood panelling on every surface envelops this dining room with warmth.
When the raw material is this beautiful, why would you cover it up? Architects Leland Dadson and Yvonne Popovska of DPo Architecture chose cross-laminated timber (CLT) for the structure of this Vancouver home for its sustainability, but the wood itself made such a bold visual impact that she decided to skip the drywall and let the material shine.
Pair the floor and ceiling panelling with a matching wood table (designed by Popovska and milled, constructed and finished by the owners, a spirited couple in their 70s) and youve got a textured-but-neutral backdrop for a vibrant painting from Vancouver artist Brixton Neufeld, sourced on the Eastside Culture Crawl. The space feels warm, even on grey rainy days, says Popovska.
