Functionalist house painted with Vitriol Pine Tar

Facade a critical part of the house´s character

The House, built in 2016, is close to both the nature and the sea. The fact that the plot is located in a south-west facing slope and was quite demanding to work with contributed to the decision to hire architect Christer Wennerholm.

The façade itself is important because it stands for a large part of the architect designed building´s character. The first coat accounted for about 90 litres of Vitriol Pine Tar.

Vitriol Pine Tar is similar to Iron Vitriol in the colour but gives a better wood protect and strengthens it. Other advantages are that you do not have to use a primer and it is a pure natural product.
