Case Study - Budenberg Haus Projekte

Project Summary

Silva Timber Products were mixing with the elite on this residential project in Altrincham, Cheshire.

Budenberg was one of the world's largest and most respected manufacturers of pressure gauges. The company had relocated to new modern premises, leaving the building empty until the opportunity to create something totally unique came along.

The Team

Silva Timber Products had the opportunity to work with some of the most prestigious names from the world of design and architecture:-

  • Urban Splash - developer of some of the most desirable living spaces in the UK
  • Foster and Partners - one of the UK's leading architectural firms and creator of the Gherkin which dominates our capital city, as well as countless other award winning international projects
  • Diarmuid Gavin - one of the best known TV personalities and host of Gardners World, Home Front and Gardens Through Time to name a few...

The Brief

To create a series of apartments and penthouses that would challenge conventions and give the town of Altrincham something to be proud of; something that people would use as a landmark; something that would make people say "I wish I lived there".

Particular attention was to be paid to the 3/4 bedroom penthouse apartments, each south facing with its own roof garden. That's were Silva came in....

Materials Supplied

Designer of the roof terraces, Diarmuid Gavin set out to create something that was user-friendly, beautiful, inspiring and had a certain twist.

The decking chosen would need to complement his ambitious design and reflect the luxury of the penthouses themselves. Silva Timber's 25 x 90mm Cedardeck Clear, the highest grade of Western Red Cedar available, with a virtually knot-free appearance, was perfect for the job, adding prestige to this unique development.

The Result

The Cedardeck Clear decking provides a runway effect, with direct access from the apartments to the sitting area.
