Derelict houses

Something abandoned, something found

If we come across an old house that has obviously been abandoned, we contact the owner. A price for the scrap wood is arranged and the house – or what’s left of is sold to us. After this it’s up to us to dismantle the derelict building and give it a second life on the walls of someone else’s house, restaurant, bar or hotel. Woods we source from abandoned and derelict houses come in various degrees of erosion. The amount of erosion – from light to heavy – influences the colour and hue of a piece of timber. We source this type of wood on Java. You can imagine how the tropical climate weathers the timber.
