We completed this project down in Portsea with Architects EAT back in 2010.
The design intent was to let the Spotted Gum weather naturally. The timber had 3 coats of clear oil applied and then left to grey. Interesting to note all the boards are still perfectly in place and no boards have popped. This could be the result of 2 factors, great installation (allowing for movement in the installation as the Expression Cladding system was designed to do) and the environment (close to the ocean is the best place to use timber because of the temperate climate).
